    Charles,

    Under the current board settings, users are not allowed to completely delete a thread, even in the Want Ads area. You can, however, still edit the post (unless it has been locked).

    Click the "edit/delete" button near the lower-right corner of the post, and simply erase all the text, leaving just a period (gotta have something left in the message block to save/submit it, I believe). Or, if the item has been sold, just put "SOLD! Thanks for looking!" or something similar.

    Hope this was helpful.
