    Why can’t we delete our posts? I sometimes write a post that is redundant as soon as I post it... usually because other posts have been posted while I was writing it... so I’m left in the position of needing to say something (I can’t delete the post or leave it blank) when I’ve nothing relevant to say...

    Just not allowed by the OP. You can however EDIT your post and remove everything and just put a NM in the post for No Message. Then you can click REPORT and ask the mods to delete that post.

    Yeah I got that... so the OP decides whether replies can be deleted or not?

    Well, as you can see you are the OP for this thread. You decide if YOUR only posts wants to be deleted. Not others. You can do this on any of YOUR posts only.

    Ok now I’m confused. I can’t find a way to delete my post, on this thread or any other...

    Like I said... YOU can't. You have to request your post to be deleted by hitting the REPORT button and telling the moderators why you want it deleted.

    Ok I get it now. And you meant the OP of the post, not the OP of the thread. Thanks.

    we can't delete our posts because people have probably abused it in the past.

    you can edit your post up to 24 hours after you posted it and ask a mod to delete it. it's a real bummer lol
