You can edit them. Replace with "---" or whatever (a cat pic, for example).

Is there a reason for not being able to delete old posts? I get that that some threads can contain value to others and such...

There's a reason why only mods are able to do that. Imagine someone gets very insultive, and then, the next morning, deletes all the posts, and tells a moderator that nothing has happened, when being asked about it.

What's the point in deleting your old posts anyway?

ok, guessed it might be something like that. Well, I like to tidy up now and again. There's way to much crap on the internet. So, mods can delete a post, if requested?

Your reason would probably have to be a lot better than “I'd like to tidy up”.

you joined in 2006, have no posts before 2008, had under 80 posts until this thread and you feel you need to tidy up the internet?
