One or two answers that I've posted are (upon reflection) so bad and unrectifiable, that I've had to delete them. Fortunately there is a button for this.
However, on the question page I can still see my "deleted" answers – in their entirety, taking up space, and highlighted in red/pink.
Ideally there would be a way to remove them completely, but presumably there is a good reason why this isn't an option.
Can deleted answers be made to be collapsiable (with a toggle switch)?
(so that I don't have to see my own blunders)
