You can't delete posts.

because it creates the possibility of deleting things you shouldn't be able to do, like deleteing other peoples threads and such. it doesn't cause a problem

Also to add, we don't want members the ability to delete cause some have asked to delete posts after they got their answer, which doesn't make sense cause those questions and answers help others seeking for answers that may have related or the same problem.

That seems to only be an option on a reply to a post, or on a post that no one has replied to yet. Other than that, I believe it's only an Administrator's or Mod's option to delete a post.

Editing will always be allowed, you just won't ever be able to delete a post. If you feel it needs to be deleted, just edit you post and put a . or something in it.
