Hi @American Twyman thank you for posting! However could you provide some more information please?
I assume that you wrote something, posted it, then decided to delete it.
There is no delete button, just the edit button you found so we can at least erase everything that was in the post, as you did. I would assume the software is written that way so that we can't wipe out a entire chain of discussions and comments with just one click. Does seem a bit strange we can't change our minds and delete a post that does not have any comments on it yet.
