I'm about 65% sure once a new post shows up after yours you can no longer delete it. However you can edit it.....to something nonsensical which can achieve the same end.

Testing...this post removed the delete option from my first post.
So my 65% is now 99.5% .

There has to be some way though that we aren't noticing.

There isn't. As I said before you can edit so "F you A-hole" becomes "I 💓 cottage cheese.

Yeah, it is mentioned in the FAQ that it can't be done:

How do I edit or delete a post?

Unless you are a board administrator or moderator, you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post by clicking the edit button for the relevant post, sometimes for only a limited time after the post was made. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic which lists the number of times you edited it along with the date and time. This will only appear if someone has made a reply; it will not appear if a moderator or administrator edited the post, though they may leave a note as to why they’ve edited the post at their own discretion. Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.
