Nope, no editing. It's a long standing policy (sorry there's no search function on metatalk) that I don't want people to say one thing and later on, change their mind or opinion then edit or delete their post.

You can edit as many times as you like in preview mode, but once you've posted, it's forever.

Which is a good policy, Matt, it's infuriating to try to follow discussions on Manila sites or ezboard.com when people can change their past comments and you never really know what's real and if subsequent posters are reacting irrationally or not.

Even though it has proven that I am lazy adhering to grammer or even too lazy to spell check, I agree.

Mostly because it hides that I mumble and mispronounce things in person...
