Is it possible to delete a post after submitting it? I looked under the settings after clicking modify with no success. Is it just not possible in this forum?

Thanks!

Deleting posts disrupt the general content of the forum. People who answered or responded then have their answers hanging in the wind. So in general, only offensive posts are removed.

Got it!  That makes sense. I had made a double post and wanted to remove one of them but did not see a delete button. I thought I going crazy since I have never seen a forum without a delete function for a post. However I can totally understand the logic behind the decision to omit that ability.

I ended up modifying one of the double posts and removing most of the message to make it work out.
