    I commented on a question today, and when I went to clarify what I had originally said, I was limited to 200 words.  I had said I would come back and continue the thought because I was under the impression I could.  I couldn't; and had to continue in a wrong area on the thread, as I was getting a message that I had made a comment already, but I could write a hub about it if I wanted to.  I didn't though, I wanted to finish my thought not to look like someone that couldn't be bothered to finish what they are saying. 

    So I asked the author to delete my comments and she didn't or won't.  Is there a way to delete the somewhat embarrassing mess?

    Here's the thread: http://leilabarda.hubpages.com/question … o-the-lord

      Dang, I see I am not likely going to get an answer.   Has anyone else written a comment that remains out there to taunt?  Lol...

      I don't know the answer--but hang tight--it's the weekend; folks are not around and on here quite as johnny-on-the-spot as on weekdays..   wink

        Thanks DzyMsLizzy, I appreciate the comment just the same.  One of those days for me, you know...?

      No you cannot delete the answer. You can edit it within 10 min of posting your answer. However, the author can delete it.

    Only the person who ask the question can delete it

      Thanks, that's what I was afraid of.

    Don't worry too much, not many people will see the answers. Look at the stats for questions you've asked, you'll see many don't have much traffic. My best performing question has reached nearly 500 views, but that was about cats, so is Googled. Most only have a couple of dozen views - not worth fretting over. It is upsetting to feel you've not expressed yourself fully, but in the grand scheme of things, it's no big deal.

    Perhaps a few more minutes considering whether your answer is helpful, condescending, or will have to be deleted in the future would save you having to ask this question.

    Just a suggestion.

        Perhaps you are assuming it was another question that I was referring to, well you were wrong.  I placed the link.  Look.

    You can comment on your original post and clarify what you wanted to say if the comment is not getting deleted.  Did that once when I had an afterthought I wanted to add.

      That's what I wanted to do, but for some reason can't.  I can comment anywhere else on the thread under anyone else's comment, but I can't start a new comment or add under my own.  Odd, isn't it?

    Strange.  It worked for me - I think it was the reply to my comment that I hit.  Ah me - the mysteries of the universe and modern technology.

      Hey Carola Finch- that might have been because you had just left the comment. On HubPages, comments are open for a short amount of time, then they lock down. This enables people to delete comments should they have realized there was a typo or something of the sort. big_smile

        I see, thanks for clearing that up.  I was wondering why that was.

        It irks the heck out of me that if we notice a typo in a comment more than five minutes after it's been posted, the only way to get rid of it is to delete the entire comment and post it again. It happened to me just the other day, as a matter of fact.

          In this case what bugs me is that we work hard to have a respectable online image with which to promote our work.  And when I look at that thread, I ended up having to bounce here and there in attempt to clear up the mess. 

          I thought I was clarifying, and after the fact I feel I came across as a - you know, fill in the blank whatever.  That the appearance of what I was doing is not discernible.
             
          Lol, it is a thorn in my side that is not likely to leave.  I shall have to accept it.
