One big failing I’ve discovered with WP is the lack of ability to delete any comments you make on another person’s blog. I found this out the hard way a few weeks back when I replied to the wrong person in the comment thread, and figured I’d just copy/paste the comment to the intended person, and then delete the original. The copy/paste went fine, then I found out I had no way to delete my initial reply.
Strange that this feature isn’t available since most other sites like Blogspot have that feature. Xanga “used” to have a delete feature but now that it moved to the WP engine, it’s now also subject to the same limitations.
Even worse, is any comments made to a site gives the owner of that site EDITING rights on them as well- which means someone else can not just delete your comment, but change the words you’ve said. Having such a “feature” available is not only ridiculous, but potentially dangerous since words can literally be put in someone’s else’s mouth.
I’m surprised folks haven’t gotten on WP’s case to take care of these issues ASAP, especially the second one.
