As a general rule a registered member has a very limited time to edit or delete their own posts. This is set to prevent anyone from posting something provocative and then deleting or editing it after causing a reaction to try and look innocent of trolling blame. If the system glitches and posts your message twice you can use the flag system, the red exclamation mark top right of each message to notify the moderating team to eliminate it. You can also request specific messages be removed via the private message system (PM) by clicking the little PM icon under the name on the right side of the screen under any moderator or admin for the board, or by clicking the link at the top and the left menu both says new messages or new PMs and type in the admin or moderator you are trying to contact in the TO box on the Compose Message link,

I should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, write, balance accounts, build a wall, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, pitch manure, program a computer, cook, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

As a general rule first time posters face bot tests. The ones to join are automated, then it's 'fire at will'. I fired, you failed, bot or not. If not, go back to the post you want deleted & post something. If so, wake up your handler & tell them there are improvements required.

Edit button is back!!!!

Well.. edit works, but timer is still set at anti-conversation mode.
Yes we are, as we are,
And so shall we remain,
Until the end.
