There's no edit option. I know it will delete itself, which is why I surmise that deleting it won't hurt anything. However, looking at it in the db, the TOPIC_ID matches the TOPIC_ID for the actual thread, so selecting Delete Topic makes me queasy. I thought about just deleting the post directly in the db, but again, I don't know what the impact will be. If I select Delete Topic, and it deletes the topic based on the TOPIC_ID and not the POST_ID, then the entire 655 pages will be gone. And I definitely don't want that. Which is precisely why I have done nothing while I wait for advice.
