Actually, I'd prefer to be able to delete any and all of my posts as I see fit. If that's enabled then anyone responding to a thread would do so with foreknowledge that the thread could be deleted by the OP - everyone gets a choice to post or not. In any event, if the 'mod backup' you have proposed goes through then the thread wouldn't be completely lost; if someone was upset enough about the loss of their post(s) they could always whine about it to the mods/admin. It really annoyed me when they introduced that in cprog just because some brat was annoyed that his/her/its prize postcount was diminished because a thread starter chose to exercise their freedom of expression by killing what they created.

Still, since there seems to be a difference of opinion over this I suppose we'll just have to vote on it.

The vote was rigged!

Oh wait I'm suppose to wait till after the vote to say its rigged....

In all honesty I do care one way or the other.  Just my preference.

Well, even at FD where there was a mod backup, it didn't backup all deleted posts, only those that were moved there. Deleted posts were lost forever AFAIK.

Although I've been pissed off at deleted posts before (but neve due to postcounts - one look at Ben Oberspammer and I gave up all hope of keeping up) I stiil agree with Ken that everyone is entitled to delete their own threads.

The recycled board is an idea I saw on SMF.  And all posts / topics that are deleted outside of that board are just moved to that board.  It's actually really nice.

Well, if occasional can be described as habitual then I suppose I must be a junkie.

In fairness, the only posts I'm likely to remove are those I regard as trivial (not an issue here) or ones where I feel I've revealed more personal information than I'm comfortable with (less likely because I'm unlikely to make such posts these days).

I don't know about you guys but I regard what I post/start as mine to keep or discard as I see fit. If that's irritating well, tough titties.

I can live with that...  

(not tough titties... but lead post deletion.  If I had tough titties, I would have to buy some nipple cream or something.)

Post deletion should be working... I haven't tested it tho.  I actually need to play around with the permissions quite a bit more.

Normal post deletion works fine but deletion of the first post of a thread isn't enabled.

Then I guess you just won't be able to start any threads ;)  jk
