    Seems strange I can't delete a post. Wouldn't hurt to add this 😉

    When you put up a post, you have an hour to edit it. So if you want to actually just delete it, all you have to to is edit it by adding the "F" bomb to the text, or some other creative profanity of your choosing, and the post will be deleted by robomod.

    At least I believe this has been the case in the past. I don't know if the recent upgrade has changed any of that. I guess you could give it a try.

    But after an hour I think you are out of luck, unless you alert the post and can convince a moderator to delete it.

    <edit> OK, I just tried it by adding the F bomb while editing this reply and it was deleted, so that still works. Robomod is on the job!

    No it wouldn't. I've been planning to add this, delete at anytime, if you so choose. Will try to get this in soon.

    Allowing posters to delete their posts will seriously detract from the flow of debate.
    It will be open to abuse ... and it will be abused.

    Especially if it can be done at any time.

    At the very least it should be possible to tell the difference between self-deleted, moderator-deleted and auto-deleted posts.

    This will be the case.

    Delete will be available at anytime, but it will show who posted and the post will remain in place - with the content deleted.

    'Community policing' might be fun.

    (A post automatically deleted if it receives 10 thumbs down).

    This would definitely be abused.

    Possibly. (The reason I stipulated '10' thumbs down).

    I agree. I'm not sure automatic deletions upon n thumbs down is a good idea. It looks to me like mob rule. One could imagine Duchess's posts, for example, being routinely deleted by this means. This would lead to de facto censorship of unpopular views. Not a good place to be.


    I prefer having an alert flag and review by moderators.
