Roles allow you to fine tune the security and administration of Drupal. A role defines a group of users that have certain privileges as defined on the permissions page. Examples of roles include: anonymous user, authenticated user, moderator, administrator and so on. In this area you will define the names and order of the roles on your site. It is recommended to order your roles from least permissive (anonymous user) to most permissive (administrator). To delete a role choose "edit role".
Drupal has three special user roles:
Anonymous user: this role is used for users that don't have a user account or that are not authenticated.
Authenticated user: this role is automatically granted to all logged in users.
Administrator role: this role is automatically granted all new permissions when you install a new module. Configure which role is the administrator role on the Account settings page.
A role defines a group of users that share the same privileges. These privileges are defined on the permissions page. It is recommended to order roles from least permissive (anonymous user) to most permissive (administrator).

- We shouldn't have to explain how to delete a role
