    Recently I answered a post and sent it, then realized that I had misread the post and answered it incorrectly and wanted to erase my answer. So I went to "Edit", backspaced over the whole thing and sent it again, but it didn't work.

    Does anyone know how to delete a post once it has been sent?

    I think you have to ask a moderator.

    You can't. I think only a moderator can.

    You can't send a blank post ... if you had left one character it would have worked. I believe if you want a post deleted you have to contact Admin.

    You, the user, can't delete a post.

    When that happens to me - say, the board gremlins cause a duplicate post - I just overwrite it with a "dupl. post" comment.

    I don't think you can post a completely empty message.

    Yep, just tried it.

    No empty messages.

    So just put xxx or misunderstanding or dupl post. ;-)

    we'd prefer you ask a moderator to delete it for you.

    those might-as-well-be-empty comments create a lot of confusion and misunderstanding.

    Other than asking a moderator all you can do is erase what you wrote, state why (or leave one character as someone else mentioned) and leave it at that.
