Deleting a reply to a post?

Hi :)

This is not directly related to the WWW campaign, but please can anyone tell me if there is a way to delete a reply to a post?

Someone replied to my 'introducing myself' journal entry, and when I wrote back to them I did it using the 'post new comment' option instead of the 'reply' option. From reading the FAQ, I think this means they wouldn't get a notification of what I wrote. So when I realised what I had done, I posted it again as a 'reply' so that they knew I wasn't ignoring them!

I cannot work out how to delete the original one. It is not a problem in this case but it would be nice to know if it is possible for the future.

Mary, hi --

Not sure about thus but I think you should email Scott directly, and he can tell you . . .

FYI everyone, the answer is "No" you're not able to delete the comments yourself. But, as Site Admin I am able to do that. Just send me a link if you need this resolved for you too.

Good to learn so quickly Mary!
