I believe it is turned of.

Personally, I'd like to have the delete feature for our own posts. Last week I posted a message and my computer hung up so I didn't think the message went thru so I wrote it again. And here comes my message twice. :( All I could do was go back, edit my post and write a nonsense message in it's place instead of just deleting it.

Sometimes not being able to delete or edit your own message is preservation of the forum. This can be important when a discussion in a thread gets heated and someone decides to modify or delete their post so that what they said can't be held against them. If something can be held against you, there's no reason to post it, right?

In reality, it's simple enough to PM a moderator with a link to the post or thread and ask them to delete it.

That is a good point. That way the person at fault can get taken care of and reprimanded and/or banned.

All they do is go back and edit.

Some sites have a time limit on editing a post.
