It is not possible to completely delete a question or answer. They are always visible to yourself and to moderators. It is also not possible to self-delete a question with 3 answers or more.

  • We can't make this decision. We're mods of this particular sub. This is a feature that would be necessary for the entirety of Stackoverflow/Stackexchange and, to answer your question, I don't think we need it, no.
