    Once you make a post you cannot delete it. You can delete the content............but the post will still remain. Most people will delete the content and type a message like;
    **Self Deleted** so people will understand why the text box is empty when they click on it.

    After you do that, flag the post yourself so the Mods' attention is drawn to it and explain you are requesting they just delete it.

      We think we've removed the topic you want removed, but please check to be sure. The best way to request removal of a post or topic is to click "Flag" under the post.

            Nah, you told him how to ask to have something deleted. We told him we'd actually done it for him.

            You can keep the thunder. Our delete button is prettier and more useful.

                The Chowhound Team are apparently of the generation that was taught to refer to an unknown person as "he" until gender was made clear.
