I am trying to delete one of my own questions but this messages pops up, "To allow for possible reopening, you may delete in 18 hours". If I asked the question why can't I delete it at my discretion? Why should I lose that right once it's posted. The question was meant to benefit me and people I know. If it no longer benefits us and even causes risk to us why should it be allowed that time frame?
The best thing I was able to do was edit it to prevent consequences and repercussions to everyone the question would affect and flag it. Any help answering this is greatly appreciated.
