Highlight the piece or the sentences you want to get rid of, press and hold the full-stop / period symbol to add the dots and to show you've deleted some text - leave enough text to show what you're responding to - like I've just done above - job done!
Practice with a real posting then use the 'Preview Post' to see what it looks like. Keep fiddling about until you're happy with what you've achieved and then just discard the whole thing without posting it.
