    I wish to delete a post that I wrote earlier in the day. When I try I get a message that I am not authorized to do so. What gives??

    I believe that you can't delete posts. Contact a moderator and see if he/she can do it for you.

    Well, that's not a bug - it's a feature. ;)

    You have to understand how vB works. Let's say you start a new thread, and then decide that you want to delete your posting. If you had permission to do so, the system wouldn't just delete your comment but the whole thread, including everybody elses' comments in that thread.

    It's hardly acceptable for any single person to take a whole thread down just because he or she started it. That's why usually only moderators and admins get to delete comments.

    HTH. Cheers,

    Sorry to bother you but I figured out how to delete my posting. I hope I did not waste too much of your time.

    You all have the patience of Saints.

    Thank you
