Question, question: If you double-post, purposely or accidentally, how do you delete it if you realize you did do it, if you can? *Wow, so many 'ifs'.*

Okey-doke, that's about it.

You can only delete it if the post you're trying to delete is the last post in that topic, but there should be a button next to the "edit" button that says "delete". If there isn't, then you can edit the post, and one of the options should say "delete this post" or something similar; check that box, and then submit, and it should work.

Or a bit more accurately, the only post of yours you can delete is the most recent post in the topic (it doesn't have to be the last one period). Right next to the standard Edit and Back-to-Top buttons is a Delete button; pressing that and confirming the following message will delete the post.

Pressing Submit multiple times is a bad idea, and if you want to bring in new material, you can either:

1) Edit your existing post to include the new material, or
2) Copy/paste your most recent post, delete it, then make a new post with both the old and new material you need. This method will bump your post to the front of the topic.

Seeing it is easy to realize; you'll just have two posts next to each other posted by the same person.
