Hey there.

Why can’t we delete any posts, comments or replies on the marketplaces?

If for example you accidentally posted something twice, or made a type and realised it after editing was locked.

I’ve always assumed this is because there needs to be a record of interactions in case of some sort of dispute. If you could delete posts you could potentially delete “evidence”.

You can always flag/report the comment to hide it, then create a new one.

True – but if you flag it, it says something about it being an inappropriate comment, which makes the writer look bad. There should be a way to flag for deletion, but not inappropriate.

We may have to change the phrasing of a flagged post. “Inappropriate” doesn’t always sound right :)
