Default How to delete a Read-only node?


I did something in the wee hour of last night and right now, I can't seem to get rid of this one geometry when I press delete.
In the script editor it said,

//Error: Cannot delete read-only node.//

I deleted history and freeze geometry.
I even tried to delete it from the hypergraph and tried to rename the node. But no success.

Has anyone ever run into this problem? If so, please let me know how to solve it.

Thank you in advance.
