    1. Click the Yes button. The post will be immediately removed and will be visible only to you on the discussion board page as DELETED under the post date section.

    2. You can also click the Ban button to prevent the writer of the post from creating any further discussion posts. 

  2. If you wish to delete a comment within a post, browse to the Comments section of the post’s details page and locate the comment you intend to remove.

    1. Click the Remove (trash can) icon found inside of the comment’s panel.

    2. Click the Yes button. The comment will turn red and be immediately removed from the posting.
