You can just click on "Modify" tab, highlight the text, and then hit "Delete" in the lower right portion of your keyboard.

Thanks, Starlight. I've tried that process a million times, but I must be missing something. It simply doesn't work for me. Oh well. Maybe a Mod can delete this post, including the above two of mine. Many thanks.

I'm under the impression that posts cannot be deleted.  One can delete all the text of a post but not the entire post itself.  The Mods can explain the rationale better than I can.   Grin

Friul is correct. We prefer not to delete messages. However, you do have the ability to modify your post for about fifteen minutes after you submitted it; some people who wish to delete a post simply replace all of the text with the word "deleted" or a similar phrase.

How is it then that certain posts just seem to disappear into thin air? Huh

Cyber ghouls.   laugh

Not sure.  Posts are not deleted unless due to explicit content and we have to get it down ASAP.  Posts can be split, merged and sent to the Private Section, maybe that is why they appear to vanish?

This must be the only possible answer. As an Orthodox Christian I should be used to the fact that  some things must simply be accepted by faith rather than trying to explain the unknown. Sigh.
