How to delete a post (accidentally posted it twice)

Somehow, I accidentally posted a thread twice on this forum. Can't seem to find out to delete one of them. Any idea?

The best way I know is to click on the "edit" button, backspace through the text of the duplicate, then add a few dots, or an ellipsis. For explanation you can put "deleted duplicate post" in parentheses. You'll probably have to pay a fine, but they are no longer ordering a public lashing in the town square.
