    It went away because too many people were deleting their posts, throwing entire threads into a "no-make-sense-no-more" black hole.

    A little bit more clarification:

    After a lot of discussion the BYC Staff decided to remove the ability for members to delete posts. We've received complaints from members that there has been a lot of confusion resulting from posts being deleted and the flow of a topic ends up all crazy.

    We know this may cause some inconveniences, but we believe the pros outweigh any potential cons. If we end up being wrong then we may change this back.

    Oh c'mon Lurky you have to make it to your 1000 post!!!!
    You might get a suprise!
    Ive never used my delete, but I sure use the edit!!! yes sometimes, especially late at night or before the morning shower, we say strange things, but we can always mend our foot in mouth ways.
    Have you had your morning coffee yet????
