Suggestion: To be able to completely delete your discussion even after someone commented it

Hi, Thank you Duolingo for creating such an awesome web site. I have a little suggestion; I find it really inconvenient that when I post something and someone comments under it I can not delete my whole discsussion and I have to ask Moderators to do so. Don't you think that it would be useful to be able to delete you discussion completely after you press 'Delete' button

Assuming we are not talking about 'abuse,' I think the lesson may be to be very, very certain you want to say something to the world before you hit <enter> :) If you start a discussion on a free, open site like Duo I don't think you should have the authority to delete others' non-abusive comments, just your own. That is the way several forums I am on operate. If you are having to ask Mods to delete entire discussions, something is amiss, and you may want to more carefully word your initial posts, or accept that others' may have differing opinions.

OK :) It just happened to me once that I posted something accidently and someone commented asking what was I doing and I didn't want to confuse anyone and wanted to immediately delete it. OK I will just ask the moderators then. Thank you so much for pointing everything out :)
