Exactly. I have the same notions. It was only recently that I jumped on an OP or poster who made drastic changes to his earlier post, that made whatever I wrote subsequently completely out of context and wayward that any one who read the thread would consider me an absolute idiot ( and how SevenForums could have given a medal for such an absolute idiot. ). I am not. Incidentally it was the first time I lost my cool and used a .

I am a member of another Indian Forum which has strict standards on written English ( no slang, no net language or blabber, no mention of hacking and copying etc., etc.,) and no editing beyond 20 minutes of posting. If the poster has anything to modify beyond 20 minutes, he has to do it only on a new post in that thread.

And I have been seriously considering suggesting this to the Admin. I think it is time for Admin to take note of this.
I disagree with cutting off editing of posts after a given time limit. I have seen many instances where later edits, when done well, were very helpful. There are ways to make edits without making subsequent posts look foolish, e.g. a PS. in the post which simply states that there is a correction in a later post with a time-stamp to show when the edit was made.
