How can I delete a post?

  1. Jun 11, 2009 #1
    I've made some posts in the past where I ask questions that now strike me as...well...dumb. And a little embarrassing. I'm not interested in having them around anymore - particularly since Google searches have a nasty habit of unearthing them. Is there any way I can remove them?

    You can click the REPORT button on the post, and request that it be deleted (give your reason in the post report). The Mentors will look at the post to decide whether deletion is appropriate. If your post is an integral part of the thread, or if others have responded to it, we wouldn't normally delete it.

    You shouldn't feel ashamed for not knowing those answers. There's always a learning curve for anything. Have you thought about how a professor feels when his learning a new programming language? or an Engineer learning new software?
