I want to cleanup my answer due to whatever reasons.

I get an error something like I have already deleted 5 post......

Why is this restriction.

    To prevent rage quitters from deleted all their posts

  • No, you simply can't. Why would you do that anyway?

    Do they make the Internet better? Don't delete. Do they make it worse? Delete. More or less? Leave it alone, eventually you'll get upvotes.

This restriction is in place to prevent users who want to quit Stack Overflow and delete all their content from doing so.

It happened before that a user gets frustrated and wants to quit Stack Overflow. Deleting valuable content should be stopped.

You can only delete 5 posts every day. There is no expansion to that.

    Note that If you want to quit, you can ask that your posts are disaccociated with your account. This will keep the content. Nov 22 '13 at 8:32
