What you were trying to do was delete a TOPIC, not a post. I think that feature has been disabled, so it prevents inadvertent deletion of an entire topic by the topic starter. If someone had already posted to the topic Doug, you would have wiped the whole thing out. If at anytime you need something deleted and can't do it yourself, because of restrictions or perhaps you'v exceeded the time limit, send any moderator a PM with the URL and we'll take care of it for you
BTW, I took care of it for you...I'm assuming (don't cha hate that!) this was the title"
