How do you delete a post?

I’ve tried to delete a post that I was experimenting with. The text goes but you end up with an empty post that says ‘deleted by author’. Can you delete that somehow?
Example below.

I made a similar test and landed on the same problem. I think the team is already working on resolving it.

Did you get a delete badge?

I think I did originally but asked the admins to completely remove the post because I did it as a test. And it became “this post was removed by the author” or something like this. It seems that Gordon’s deleted message disappeared now so maybe the problem got resolved!
