Google Wave - Private Reply

A new feature in Google Wave is "Private reply"

You find the "Private reply" when you click on the upside down triangle icon next to the date, while viewing a Wave.

After selecting "Private reply", a new blip reply box appears. Notice the blue area above the reply entry box.

Now enter the reply.

After entered the reply, Press the 'Done' button. A contact list box will appear. Select the Contacts whom will be able to view the "Private reply".

Note: You need to be careful as you select from your contact list, as there is currently no way to remove a contact from a "Private reply".

After selecting the contacts whom may view the "Private reply", press the 'x' in the corner of the Contact list box.

The avatar pictures of the contacts selected will appear in the blue box area of the "Private reply".

Note: Once you create a "Private reply", you are unable to delete it. The "Delete" is grayed out in the drop down for a "Private reply".

Good explanation. Can you speculate as to why you can't delete a private reply? Or have the google people told you this?

Probably, you can't delete a wave or remove a contact from it yet because there is no access management configured to google wave right now.
So, if everyone could just delete an information, there would be a mess.
