And as far as insecurity goes... I suppose that's your guess as to my motivation. It happens to be wrong, at least mostly. But hey.
Then, to quote my favorite Devil May Cry character, "Where's your motivation?!"
Well, it's certainly not because I think anything is going to change at this point. Really, it's just about seeing if anyone in charge will ever respond on this. Even if it's just to tell me to f*#k off. I would love to understand their reasoning for implementing such a policy in the first place, when pretty much no other web forum has the need for such a policy. When I encounter something weird, overtly draconian, and/or completely out of touch with most the rest of the world, I get curious and want to understand.
As such, I'd like to understand the anomaly that is the edit function on these forums. I have little hope of a response, but that's no reason not to keep trying. Maybe I'll catch an admin on an "off day" when they actually feel like responding to a long standing community question. Most likely not, but these posts don't cost much for me to make every so often.
