Way to delete old posts?

Is there a way to delete or edit existing posts? It seems like there must be and it's probably easy, but I can't figure it out.

I have an old post that I put my full email address in. I'm tired of getting emails about it.

  1. There is no way for a user to delete a post. You have a short window after posting where you can edit. After that you will need to email the moderators or use the report button.

    In most cases, especially when there are replies, we are reluctant to remove posts. We can edit them, but will only do so with permission of the poster. In this case we went ahead and removed your email address as you requested.

      Thanks! I don't know what I was thinking putting my email address in there.
