    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    On hindsight, it is more common to say:
    eliminar

    (which I got on my hotmail page for example)

    "Eliminar" es la forma que aparece en la mayoria de programas de varios softwares que traducimos en españa. En ingles puede ser "delete", "erase" etc.

    Eliminar...aunque dependiendo del contexto aplicaría tambien la palabra suprimir, que creo que sería el equivalente a "discard". Dejo la aclaratoria en manos de los que conocen la materia.
