[erlang-questions] removing an element from a list

Dear All

It seems there are two ways to remove an element from a list:

    1> A = [q,w,e,r,t,y].
    [q,w,e,r,t,y]
    2> A -- [q].
    [w,e,r,t,y]
    3> lists:delete(q, A).
    [w,e,r,t,y]
    4>


Which is better, and why, or is TMTOWTDI?  (I'm sure the answer won't be 
as simple as the question:).

With thanks and best wishes

Ivan
