Post:
You can't. You can only edit your post for 1h after creating it.
AFAIK Boinc server code does not include a delete option, so it's nothing to do with the site/project.
I suggest you ask a Forum moderator to 'Hide' the post. This will make it invisible to everyone other than mods/admin/devs. Include a link to your post.

Getting what appears to be a related error:

11/05/2012 01:12:17 | Cosmology@Home | [error] MD5 check failed for params_051012_032014_1.ini

Clearly it's an MD5 hash key problem, in my case.
Here are some details that might be of help troubleshooting this issue,
