New feature ?....... Remove Post

Just posted, in Internet Event Calendar and noticed an additional feature...

Remove Post

But...... Not on this post !!
Is it Forum specific ?
ie Internet Event Calendar ?
If so, can we have it on other Forums too please ?

It saves people going back removing posts which would render other replies to that post confusing.
Many forums also only allow editing of posts for a certain amount of time after posting for the same reason.

Does it matter though that the topic has continuity? There is no law that requires forums not to have deleted posts.
I gotta say, I think PlusComUK is onto something myself.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Why not allow deletion within 5 minutes of posting, say?

Re: New feature ?....... Remove Post

Why not take more care and consideration when posting ?
There should be no need to delete any post, other than under exceptional circumstances by the moderators.

Posting an amended previous post AFTER the following post is just not ethical, no matter how "Funny" picbits thinks this is !!
