How to remove/rearrange posts in my blog?
How to remove/rearrange posts in my blog?

Deleted posts/comments' headers still show on the blog page, albeit labeled as such. Looks cluttery, can I not remove those off-topic, rambling, redundant posts entirely from view?
And the order of posts is from most-recent to oldest... that's just wrong. I see that the forums run the opposite, so that the reader can follow the posts in chronological order, which is kind of how conversations and the real-time paradigm usually operate. How do I arrange MY blog's posts in that manner, or, better yet, how do I arbitrarily arrange posts so that "the flow" is apparent to the reader?

Thanks for the feedback. We have no plans to add the ability to hard delete content at this time, but we'll keep it in mind as a future enhancement. While the conversational nature of a forum thread lends itself to chronological order, all major blogging platforms have standardized on reverse chronological order.

Thank you, sir, for the prompt response; i know you to be a very busy fellow, and did not really expect an answer from THE MAN himself ! I feel honored.
But I am troubled by the fact that I have not seen these "orphan headers" in the LQ forums; is it just an issue with blogs, then? A "hard delete" would certainly be a welcome enhancement, especially in a blog like mine, where the ratio of deleted ravings to worthwhile contributions is about 50/50.
What I am getting on my blog is the conclusion at the beginning, the answer preceding the question, and the opposite of what I see on the forums. Am I doing something wrong?
Thank you again for your attention, I admire your work here immensely. --------- Dan

Do note that your blog should not be used to ask questions, those should always go in the fora. If you have specific entries you'd like deleted, you can report them and a mod will take a look.

Ah so desu ka. I hadn't thought of it that way, will keep that in mind at all times, thanks.
If you promise the mod will not ltao and post my picture under "stupid" in the encyclopedia, that would be a tremendous fix for the current mess. Thank you kindly, good sir.
