I posted some sensitive information, and now I want to delete the chat conversation so it isn't public. Is there way I can remove that information? It's very urgent!

Flagging is usually the best option, although there are not always moderators present on https://chat.stackoverflow.com so it could take a little while. I've deleted the flagged messages.

    @pleasedeleteme They receive a lot of mail, and they can take up to 48 hours to reply. Alternatively flag the message in chat and ask a mod to delete it. Oct 26, 2011 at 16:24
