Or simply ask for it to be merged into your registered account. – mmyers Jan 12 '10 at 17:26

Huh? Isn't there a delete button when you view your question?

Only if no one has answered it yet. It stops being your question when you post it btw, and it becomes the community's. – Andreas Bonini Jan 12 '10 at 19:23
You still get a delete button after posting the question, but there are rules about when you can delete something. In this case, however, the OP is looking specifically for a feature which would allow him to delete what is, according to the system, technically someone else's question -- he did the other post while not signed in. – John Rudy Jan 12 '10 at 20:06
