I was trying to add to a thread, and clicked "New Topic" instead of "Post Reply," and it created a whole new thread when I had not intended to.

How can I delete that post and that whole thread?

Thank you.

Yes, that is the one I wrote that I want to delete. I want to delete the whole thread, as it is a distraction from the thread "women peeing outdoors." I created that thread "women peeing outdoors in a wheelchair" by mistake.

I added a slightly edited version of that entry in the "Women peeing outdoors" thread, so all that is needed is for the old one to be deleted.

Probably the easiest thing to do if it happens again is to report the post. We have a new 'merge' feature so it's possible to do it all at a touch of a button without having to re-type anything. Just hit report and tell us what needs to be done in the pop-up box that appears.
