    It is not the general policy to edit or delete forum posts. When a post is made and people contribute answers to an issue, that then becomes part of the community resource for others to benefit from. Deleting posts removes this added value. In extreme circumstances, the moderation team might be persuaded to remove sensitive information but. generally, your best course of action is not to publish anything that you wouldn’t want to be public. I’m sorry but this is not an extreme case.

    Couldn’t you just delete his email address from the post. Seems like a fair request.

    There may be a data protection issue here?
    If someone asks you to remove their private data from your website you should remove it. That’s my very basic understanding of data protection.

    yes, i’d appreciate it if you could at the very least remove my personal email address from the post. it was relevant at the time, but i just don’t want it being listed on any sites for personal/privacy issues. if you can’t delete the thread, i understand; but i’d appreciate if you’d consider removing my address from it. cheers.

    I removed the emails.

    Keep in mind, this has no bearing on Google for a while. They cache everything :/

    thanks for deleting the email from the original post, but it’s actually listed in my response, too (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/i-will-pay-you-to-help-me-set-up-my-blog?replies=3#post-546044). sorry to be a hassle, but if you could remove that one too, i’d really appreciate it.

    thanks a bunch!

    Done.

    As a reminder to everyone else, we don’t normally do this. If you don’t want your info public, don’t post it. 🙂 You can edit your own posts here for up to an hour.

    Could you please delete this thread? http://wordpress.org/support/topic/blog-missing-after-changing-its-directory-name?replies=3#post-4464269

    I could not delete the thread within the hour I posted it. There were no such option. Now I would like you to delete this thread for me instead please.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, as posted above, that’s only done in extreme circumstances – this isn’t that. (Even within 60 minutes, you can’t delete a thread – only modify it.)
