Yes, and no.
Yes there is a way, no you don't have access to it.
Yes, I have access to it; No, I won't do it.

Simply put, we don't remove posts/threads that don't violate our TOS with very rare exception.

You cannot delete forums. And it's doubtful the mods will delete your posts just because they were "whiny and immature"..

They need to change this. They could at least let us delete threads or posts?

that ability provided to Members can lead to serious problems..........truly serious........very few Sites will allow Members to delete their Posts after a certain and short period of time.........

One reason.........in my experience........is that a person may make a certain comment, and when challenged on it, go back and edit or delete that comment and then pretend they did not say what they said.........

Not saying this happens here because we only have 5 minutes to edit or delete our Posts.......but, i have seen it occur on other Sites

You have been a Member for 5 1/2 years and only have 38 Posts? Using more than one Screen Name, or just not very active on CC? :) I doubt if anyone is going to criticize you for prior Posts given how few you have under this Screen Name.

Think of it this way, it is a good benchmark for how far you have matured in your attitude and thinking...

You have to leave the conversation to remove it from your list.

You can "clear" your PM files out.......just have to look at all the Options to find the one to delete them all......don't think it says delete thought, but it will get rid of them. I dump all of mine every year
