    Are you talking about you private messages Gran, You cant delete posts from the forum. Only the mods can do that, I think?

    Ah yes - think you've got it Lyn - Cangran means the PMs. 

    Clicking in the box and then clicking delete should do it - but you probably need to leave that page and return, or maybe click on the refresh button to reload the page for it to take effect.

    Well said Edd image

    Mike - don't fight tiredness to post - that's silly - go to bed and have a good night's sleep.  Wake early and refreshed in the morning. 

    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.   I don't think the 'wealthy' is guaranteed tho' .... if so then I'm still waiting image

    Mike, why dont you just shut up until you have something worthwhile to say.

    This is Grans thread about deleating pm's whts its got to do with you posting about the police and home office, blimey! You havent been in the police force for donkeys years, then you were only a traffic cop.

  • An very offensive posting, Lyn.

    I can't see anything offensive in lyns thread,  all she is pointing out is that as much as I can value Mike's advice  as I have everyone's on this forum,  he has  on this one maybe posted on the wrong thread and it don't fit in with what I have asked . 

    Lyn has only said similar to Mike as others have , when they've been trying to help him. 

    I can see both sides.

    Feel free to have it deleted Jennifer, the mods do this very promptly, I had to report one of Mike Allens recently, very offensive, my OH thought it should go to the Police, fortunately it was deleted before he could!
