Is there any way to delete your own posts?

For posts where the editing time has elapsed, the post cannot be altered or deleted by the member who posted it. Moderators do not, as a rule, delete old posts because of a member's "change of mind" or "change of opinion". Here is a relevant section of the Community Handbook:
Given that individual posts become integral parts of larger discussions and threads, it is not possible to delete posts except in truly exceptional circumstances. You must also be aware that if you decide to retire your account in the future (i.e. to leave the forum), your posts will remain in the forum as part of the public discussion, and will remain searchable with your name. (It is helpful to think of posting to the forum along similar lines as publishing an article or text in a magazine or book: once it has been published, its content and your name attached to it remain in public readership and accessibility into the future.) Please do not register or post to this forum unless you understand and explicitly accept that your posts, with your name, will be publicly accessible on the internet in this way, in perpetuity.
