    @RS please read the pinned post. For bug reports, use the "support request" on top of the page. We do not actively monitor these discussions in the General section but we do answer when noticed. 

    If you comment on something, your comment will remain, that is correct. It's actually very similar way that certain similar sites do it and the reason is simple. It would be extremely easy to misuse the feature: Write something and wait for others to react, then edit it to make the person replying look ridiculous etc. So yes, comments and captions stay as originally written in other posts and they are non editable, however you can edit it in the post in your blog, after that the post starts to live it's own life. However if you are the original poster you can delete it and it will be deleted everywhere (reblogs will be deleted as well).

    I take it as a bad sign that Support has not responded to this. I guess it means they are aware of the issue but have no timeline or intention of addressing it. Terrible for privacy and transparency if you cannot delete any post or comment on a blog....

    Thank you, Support, for the comment and explanation. I hadn't thought of people misusing it, but that makes sense. I wish I would've known this before I started blogging, but I understand now. Thank you.
