Deleting Dopey Posts

So, if I post something that I later regret and want to pull it, how do I do it?

I've gone into the "edit" mode of my post, tried clicking the radio checkbox button and the "delete" button, but the post stubbornly remains in place.

Any advice?

Thanks!

Check or money order made payable to Mike DeVuono in the amount of $25.00 per post...

I'll send you the address to send it to.

You want fries with that?

You could send El Guapo a series of url's locating your dopey posts and he might go in there and delete them for you. No more than 10 a month please. The cost: Buy me a burger and a beer when I see you next. It's a rather low probability that you would ever have to pay off because I never leave this god forsaken region anymore.

;) Just send the links.

I don't think so- I can edit my post for a bit after it's posted, but I cannot delete a post.

Off Topic- why am I not getting email when someone posts to a thread anymoe? I keep changing it in my bio, but I'm still not getting any love.

Maybe your email address is incorrect?

TP - Things are going to start happening to you NOW!~
I went into the machine innards of this here board and set your setting to "receive email as default." Whooo Doggies!

Post here if it don't work.

Tran dont feel bad my little email thing stoped way back with the big crash, i reset myself and it does not come back but i know to check the boards about every 30 min to an hour and see whats up-less mess on my outlook that way.

I think the power to zap posts only rests with the Mods so feel free to drop any of us a line and we will be happy to help you.
