    No need to delete, just say something that isn't interesting. It'll disappear faster that way.

    You didn't try very hard then coyote, click edit, then delete post.

    You can delete a post but not a thread.

    I wonder why i can't delete a thread that i created. is there some reason why its not possible. I own the thread in the first place.

    You cannot delete a thread because while you might have created the original post, you did not create the content other users put into a thread.

    I've been posting on fora since ~2002 and this is definitely a curiously prevalent attitude in the post facebook world.

    You do not "own" the thread just because you made the first post. It's a public forum, the discussion belongs to the participants. Things like "hey get out of my thread!" are the kind of drivel you would never hear in a usenet group.
