How to delete a thread on 4chan

Updated April 17, 2017

4chan is an Internet message board founded by Christopher Poole, aka "Moot," in 2003. 4chan has achieved fame for its popularisation of Internet fads such as lolcats and "Rickrolling." 4chan has a stripped down interface with posts just consisting of a small piece of text and an optional image. If you make the opening post to a thread, you may delete the thread with minimal fuss.
