I have posted on different forums, but have not been able to completely delete the post once I was finished with it - can this be done?

I have gone in a put a period, but deleting the post would be best???

I don't think you can delete it. Think you have to be content with editing even if you edit it to say "deleted" or a period like you mention.

I accidentally triple posted once and couldn't figure out how to delete the other two. I had to do as Sally said, edit and update with a little *double post or *delete notation.

No it cannot be done. I don't even know if the site can do it, they never have as far as I know.

Yes there is.  Go to your post.  Click on edit post.  Highlight post. Press "Delete" key.  Click on update post.

Jason, I think Pat means a way to delete everything - so there isn't even an 'empty' to show that there HAD been a post...

Don't think so, the best option available is to erase content but the box itself will probably remain.
