The one thing that constantly annoys me on GAG that other sites have but GAG lacks is the ability to edit/delete posts. Often times I'll realize a typo or something I left out after I post and want to fix it but can't or I might want to take back something I posted. Or at least allow us some time after posting to edit/delete before the post gets locked in (I think YouTube does this).
What do you guys think about this?
You should be able to edit/delete posts freely

You should be able to edit/delete posts for a while before it gets locked in
Im all in for the ability of wanting to edit/delete posts. Some questions contain personal info of either themselves or others. IE: pics, names, etc. It should only be fair in any situation either way in my opinion
i'm in favour of having a timed edit function.. where after posting an answer, you have maybe 10 - 15 minutes to edit it. I don't think there should be deletions because the knowledge may be useful to someone in the future who may be searching for the answer to their question
If you are not an admin/mod, you shouldn't be able to delete posts. The pleasure of freedom of speech is the ability to express your opinions without being infringed upon. If you allowed users to delete other people's answers, you are just going to create a big power struggle on the site and it will be unproductive. Less admins and mods, the better - just like government.
