    What reviews? This? http://wordpress.org/support/topic/doesnt-work-anymore-2?replies=4 You can only modify any posts you've made for 60 minutes. I'd echo Jan's comment in that thread.

    Not specifically that one, just in general. I'll be more hesitant to contribute anymore knowing that it's gonna be there forever. It might be concluded from Jan's and your comment that you might not consider that a big loss, but still I would like to know if (and if not why not) I can delete anything I've written on these forums.

    We don't like to delete things on forums because it affects others who are using the forums as a resource for similar issues. You can delete anything you've written on these forums within a 60 minute window of writing it.

    It IS a good idea to think about the longevity of what you post anywhere online. Even if posts here ARE modified (which only happens in extreme circumstances), they very likely have been widely cached by other sites and search engines.
