I posted a mocking comment in that thread this morning. After being shamed by Jason and TBP's posts I went back and tried to delete it. Got a message saying something like "users are not allowed to delete posts in this forum."
So then I edited it, deleted all the text, and tried submitting it as a blank post. The initial response was something like "There are not enough characters in that post. Would you like to delete it?" I said yes, and lo and behold, it was gone.
Seems like there must be a bug somewhere in there. Either we are or aren't supposed to be able to delete our own posts in that thread.
