I think it would be nice if there were an option on the message boards to delete one's own messages. You can edit your posts, but you can't delete them once they're made. That seems like it would be a good option.

You can always just edit the post to have no message. Just highlite your words and hit the back button and suddenly you have no message. In addition you can always e-mail me or my staff and we will delete it for you after we make sure the request actually came from you. <VBG>
Oh oh Marc, are you being a bad boy and the staff has to delete your posts, lol. I have had some posts disappear and they weren't bad posts either but I thought that maybe they just did not go thru, now I'm wondering. Hmmm.

Wew do not delete any message unless they violate the published rules. The only other time a post might get deleted is if it is in response to a post that violates policy and has to be deleted. If your post is in direct response to that post and attached to it then it may be automatically deleted. That is they was the delete program works and not intentional. Whenever we have to delete a post for violation of the TOS, (and we really hate to do it and take great pains to allow even borderline posts), it automatically deletes all of what it calls it's 'children', which is a computer talk for saying direct replies I guess.

I am really an advocate of cause and effect. Some action took place to remove a post. It just doesn't happen on it's own. It may have been unintentional, or the byproduct of another action, but something caused the effect.
