You don't. Only mods do. And ponies.
Or ask via the http://cdn.macrumors.com/vb/images/buttons/report.gif button to have your threads deleted, but as they already contain replies, it will hardly happen.

And which "profile page" do they clog up, because you have to click "Find all threads ..." to see them via your profile page.
Do you mean your Subscriptions/User CP page? You could unsubscribe.

How often do you do that? Anyway, since that search is limited to less than 500 items, be glad when you reach 500 threads. And you created eleven threads more than me.

Why not use the Subscription option?

Note also that you can create custom searches easily.

http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=677794&starteronly=1

is the link from your profile page.

If you want to restrict it to threads started only in the last week add:

&searchdate=7&beforeafter=after

i.e.

http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=677794&starteronly=1&searchdate=7&beforeafter=after

EDIT: While you may not like to see your posts in a list like this, the folks that replied to you or anyone else having the same thought/problem may not like it if you remove those threads. So please don't!

Will that only work with your own threads/posts, as it does not work for me, either via clicking that link or copy/pasting it?

Try this one for you:

EDIT: I edited my post, perhaps you hit it when it was incorrect?
