    This one is a little bit of a bother for me. Though I don't posts often. Its easy to understand the stress and irk of when some random dupe arrives to post inappropriate or hateful responses. Sometimes they never even get removed either.

    The point of this in short is. Give thread makers the right to delete posts that violate the guidelines. I understand its one of the rights moderators have. But sometimes it might be awhile before a mod will get to the situation. If its minor and few mods and are online. It might not get resolved at all. So. I hope this suggestion will be helpful and maybe even get implemented. It sure would give the staff some help for one thing.

    Would have to be a section-by-section thing. I could see it maybe making sense in some sections but in others it would make it even more of a chaotic mess.

    Only mods have the ability to delete posts, it is their prerogative. Not even helper mods are able to do it.
    I highly doubt regular members will be given the right to delete posts in their own threads

    Not to mention it would screw up members post count it’s just a bad idea.

    This idea can be abused very fast, I hope it never happens.

    This would give thread makers the option to delete posts for whatever reason and it could easily be abused. I understand that mod's replies are not always as fast as desired, though. In those cases, besides reporting, I would recommend you that you add the person to your ignore list so you don't have to deal with the posts anymore.

    Let them delete the first 2 or 5 if it's possible,

    Lessens the chances it turns into an ad hominem bs.

    Not every section needs this.
