The way to delete your posts is to click the little paper-and-pencil icon , then to check the checkbox "Delete this post" and then to click the "Edit Post" button.

you will have to be logged in with the same account id to edit your own posts. if your post is the first one in the thread, the entire thread will go away.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

You need to delete posts in the way I mentioned. The "Delete Topic" button is for moderators only.

If the thread is closed (or is a copy of a thread that has been moved) you will not be able to edit it.

I have deleted all your other posts. You can delete this one in the manner described above.

If you ever want to come back, note that you don't have to post under your own name. You can use a fictitious name, as long as it adheres to to the rules of the screen name policy.

Ah. Sorry, but that's life on the Internet. Long after content disappears from its original source, it will live on at search engines, archives like the Wayback machine, etc. You can certainly try to get Google to delete their caches of your posts, but you may never truly purge them from the whole Internet, I'm sorry to say.
