Would you like to be able to clean up your blog by deleting things there you no longer need?

          i voted no.

          why make more work for todd?  blogs are not important enough to worry about.  No big pearls of anything in blogs.

          140 views - 13 votes - not very important to most.

            Now it is no longer a puzzle...Not intended to make more work on
            Todd.

            May not be important to most.  However, when asked,  Would you like the right/abilitiy to do something,  it sounds funny to here someone say "no".

              I was one of those who said "no" for the same reason.  Once I write an opinion and it goes into cyberland, I usually don't go back to it after a few days, since nobody comments on an old blog entry anyway and I can always lock it.

                Just Curious to whether Todd has read this poll or not.. ?

                How about it Todd?  Could blogs have deletion buttons for the author?

                  There are very few "Delete" buttons on Lottery Post by design.  There may well be people who rely on information you may consider unimportant, or perhaps people who may find it useful in the future.

                  In the rare case that someone posted something harmful or hurtful, I have always helped people out and manually deleted those things when they requested it.  But that's a lot different from what you're talking about, which is a delete function for whatever reason, including general cleanup, changing methods, "oops", or whatever.  For all that stuff, one man's trash in another man's treasure.

                      I agree with Todd on this and to me the same goes for any other post here at LP, I sure would not want any of my filters posts deleted and I also posted some very nice lyrics, quite a few of them, mostly as LANTERN, I don't want any of them deleted either. all of my posts of any kind took a lot of time and work for me to post, it might be O.K. maybe to delete them some-time in the far future once the LP database gets way too big for the Lottery Post to handle it, but not until then.

                      EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
                      Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

                          I don't understand this poll.  I've written lots of things in my many years online that I would like to disappear forever and wish I could undo and clean up my past as well.  For example, I would like to go back and buy tech stocks in 1987 and sell them in March 2000. The past is the past.  Unless someone is under Federal Investigation, I don't know why he or she would be so concerned about cleaning up a blog history. In that case, I would change my identity and move to Cartagena.
