I have tried googling it and looking for the option myself but with no luck.

Sorry, but no way. Those threads are now the property of IB and this message board and members and mods have given their time to reply and help and you'll just have wasted everyone's time for nothing.

Sounds to me like somebody is trying to cover their trail.

Its true, I am trying to cover my trail. Although they were fairly recent, looking back on my old threads makes me question my sanity and maturity.

I bet Hillary wishes she had such an option. Everything we've said or done is now part of history . . . . we have to deal with it. "You buttered your bread; now lay in it".

Why would you lay in buttered bread?

It's intended as a Yoke; or a mixed metaphor, about the fact that all actions have consequences that one must be prepared to bear.

Growing up, an old idiom used on children was "you made your bed, now lie in it" or the one about the ir-reversability of some actions implied in "you buttered your bread, now eat it" . . . . my comment above is a combination of the two.

But I digress . . . . maybe you had to be there?

Probably such nonsense shouldn't be allowed on a serious subject.

I think we've covered this topic thoroughly. Anything further should be handled in a PM to a moderator or the board administrator.
