Who here would like to be able to edit their posts and thinks it's ridiculous that the option is not there? Or am I blind?

  • We appreciate the feedback and things are on the table for consideration.
    However, the reason we don't allow it now is its potential for abuse. Users trolling/antagonizing, changing it after, making the responses seem unwarranted and worse than they really are, or irrelevant.
    Ever-changing posts would also confuse the community, rendering the opinions and advice useless with the addition or deletion of certain details or words.
    We encourage everyone to carefully consider what they post before posting it. Typos can be corrected using updates or comments, and we admins often correct typos we catch in questions as well.

  • It would be nice I've made some grammar mistakes, but there's a lot of stuff I said I wish I could just take back or said better.

    • Same.. sometimes I can be a bit harsh in my wording.

    • I know right. I was once told I'm tactless, but honest, I think this bleed over into my writing as well.

  • By not giving you the option, they HOPE you will take a few seconds to think before typing, to read through what you wrote before clicking SEND IT, and stop being such an impatient nutter.
