Sorry tos226, once you post only Moderators and Admins can delete that item. But you should be able to edit your post for about 24 hours.

tos226,

I have deleted the post you refer to, for you. :thumbsup:

Thank you, Animal.

KoanYorel, I gathered as much. The thing is, when you misread the question, you give an irrelevant answer, then you fight to delete all text and BC says it can't be blank, so then you have to write something totally silly which, thankfully, Animal found.

I suppose it's a rough decision how to handle it. I'm on one forum where they allow to delete a post, so long as it's the last one. So you delete it, and perhaps get a private message from one person asking what happened to what they just read 'cause they found it useful after all. I'm not proposing a solution, 'cause I don't know it :thumbsup:

Keep up the good work. This is a fabulous forum.
