don't tell me

It appears that only moderators,administrators, and managers can delete posts.
Being able to delete posts is a must with the forums playing up like they are at the moment.
You either get the same message popping up three times, because the server times out (hinting at reposting) but then five minutes later it turns out that the first post did in fact go through properly, or you can't submit anything at all.
