You may be able to contact the webmaster. They do get around to providing you with an answer about a question.
Not technically oriented myself.
Sorry to hear you want to vaporize yourself. You're a good egg.
We did have this situation once before on the forum. If I recall the up-shot was that only whole threads can be deleted.
Maybe things have changed.
I hope you reconsider though. You would be missed around here.

I just wanted to add the same thoughts than Iain, PB and Memé.
I , too, would miss you. Tho' you don't write these days, you're someone who showed his good heart and I respect you.
Hey Phensy, my friend, where are you going??? It was truly a great pleasure to spend time with you in NJ/NY and I hoped that we might get the chance to do it all again. You are one funny, nice, kind man and I hope it was just a rhetorical question and that you aren't really wanting to vaporize your account here.

What a shame Phens you should wish to wipe all trace of one of the most welcoming, genuine, funny, people here on the forum.
Please reconsider, you WILL be sorely missed by us all.
When I read this just now, mortified was the word. Who else has that same quick humour regarding the footie/sport/beer/inventions/beer/and did I say footie?!
If you are leaving us for good Phens I would just like to say it has been a pleasure friend. The place truly won't be the same without you.
Good luck with the poetry, Ill keep my eye open for your books at Waterstones! Meanwhile Ill try to hold the fort on the silly verse here.
Please don't go. . . . .

Sorry Folks, I only posted this cos I initally couldnt see any proper options to contact anyone. But once I looked around there are a few links in places.
I very rarely post anymore anyway, so its no big deal. Its just time to move on to pastures new. And this post wasn't meant to be a big thing.
Theres still plenty of good folk around here, and thats all it takes to make a community.
Of course if they can't delete individual posts just from me, then I'll have to leave behind all the stuff I've added over time, but hopefully these entries are just stored on a database somewhere and someone can just run some queries to find em, tag em and bag em.

I've also been spending less time in the clubhouse lately. There just doesn't seem to be much going on to comment on. Happy Birthday to all those friends I've missed BTW.
But? why burn bridges? When Pete gets around to I/O, Back Scratch, OVO2, Rarities Box, whatever he's working on that might someday see the light of day, there will be reasons to get involved regularly here again.
Take a vacation from the moon, but I'll add my call for you to hold on to your passport.

Hey Phens, i can certainly understand the "moving on" concept. What i don't quite get, however, is why you are so keen on eliminating all the contributions you made to the forum in the past. I also don't think that THEY will not do that for you. What happens then to the continuity of all those discussions you took part in? You would then have a situation where people would be answering phantom posts that no longer exist and the threads would no longer make any sense. But WHY would you want such a thing? This type of attitude usually comes out of anger and you don't seem to be angry with anyone in particular, let alone the entire forum.
phensman2 June 2009 at 3:38pmPosts: 1841 (0 today)Status: offline
Nechesh, nope no anger. Just unhappy with the idea of leaving behind a whole load of comments in a place I'm no longer a member.
And it just seems to me that just as it is so easy to make contributions online, it should be as correspondingly easy to remove them too.
Of course if thats not the case then so be it, but so far even getting a reply from anyone at Real world seems far from simple.

Phens. . .
We haven't spoken much here on the moon, but there have been a few times. The times we have spoken you were nothing but respectful, positive, fun and sincere. I actually just looked back at some of the the posts between us that I could recall. . .they were just as I had said. . .respectful, positive, fun, sincere.
Ultimately, you must do what you think is right for yourself. . .just want you to know that you will truly be missed by this Lunatic, and obviously many others. . .your contributions here will also be missed if you find a way to delete them.
I'm speaking here for myself, but I can't help but feel that I'm not alone with these thoughts.
Spoken with the utmost sincerity. . .
Ahh Paul - you know we cant erase our foot prints.
you were and will always be part of Peters collective and a friend of mine.
I believe that once love is sent it cannot be stopped or changed - and we here love you and you words.
Times will change and the river will change its course - we all find that waterfall - but as the river leads to the ocean eventually and all eb and flow returns US via the rain to the rivers mouth.
Dont go man - just take a vacation from the net and then bring back US all a little gift of your time and words.
Paul & Carolyn

If you keep on with your own site on myspace, as you did, its all fine, I think.
I love reading your posts there, even if I cannot answer too much. This is the way it goes, you have found out a lot for yourself, Peter related or not, and you do it your way now. For me, you are still within close reach thus, and I think, you are doing very fine!
Others also used this other way and there is nothing wrong about doing so (even if some here opposed any such new ways for a while, which is not understandable, still not).
I recall a lot of communal fun with you here too, and maybe at some given time you would like to join in again?
Yes, it sometimes feels good to make a clean table, this I also understand very well, but nothing bad happens, if you don't.
Just know, that you are always welcome, dear friend, no matter from which sender
