    Withdrawn posts

    Having the ability to remove withdrawn posts from one's history would be nice

    Withdrawn posts are not available for public view.

    Is there any particular reason why you don't want to see your withdrawn posts?

      People use it instead of editing posts. I used to do it occasionally, before you so kindly gave me an edit button. It's then a bit annoying, as you scan down your recent posts looking for replies - as withdrawn ones get in the way. The easiest way to deal with it would be to compress them, and you have to press the expand comment button to see them. That is if you consider it worth bothering to do anything at all.

      Assuming editing is the reason, then rolling out the edit button to more people would have a similar effect, for less work.
