When I try to delete my comment, it says "The email address/password combination you entered does not have the appropriate permission to delete this comment."
After looking through the relevant board.pl code, it turns out only admins (Blue and me) can delete posts. So Blue's Jan 2017 post was unfortunately not accurate.

Indeed. My apologies for causing confusion.

Hello Blue,

When I try to delete my comment, it says "The email address/password combination you entered does not have the appropriate permission to delete this comment."

Thanks.

There seems to be no option to do it in the website, how should I go about deleting my account from BluesNews? Thanks.

We don't actually have an account deletion function. Sorry about that (and sorry you want to leave). If you want to invalidate your account, you can delete any or all of your posting history, and/or change your account details to something that doesn't link back to you. We don't retain old account info, and this will effectively divorce you from your history here.

Hope that suffices.
