Is voicing pity over a situation a personal attack? My bad.

 

It was more the being compared to a bum who wets himself part, actually. But I actually thought it was funny, particularly that it was stated by a moderator, which was supposed to have been conveyed by the smiley face with the tongue hanging out. You did see the smiley, right? At any rate, I suppose this is where someone is supposed to come along and tell us to get back on topic. Oh wait, again! :p

 

 

[uh oh, an edit?]

Back on topic? Ok. I just made another mistake and I can't edit it to add a letter without it showing that it was edited. Damn my rusting English. :facepalm:

Ive got an idea! One of you clever posters created a mod that could remove specific posters from their view. What if they made something for you that removes the offending "edited by" from your view? Maybe they will see this and hook you up. :thumbsup:

Assuming I could find time in between my brisk schedule riding trains and pissing myself, maybe I could look into that!

 

But a mod isn't required to remove posters from their view. You just have to put that poster on your ignore list. I have someone on mine.

I think the mod even removes the notification of an ignored post. So it could possibly remove the notification, to you only, that you edited your own post. Win/win!

Ah, but the rest of the world would know. And the knowledge that the world know, might be too much knowledge and make the poster end up as a bum who wets himself. How do you know that this hasn't happened on another forum already?

And this is a problem because...?

This thread continues to be an expression of insecurity. Oh em gee, someone might see an edit and think something!

It doesn't matter, it won't be changed, and it isn't funny as a running gag. Let it go.

I'll let it go when I either a) get a response from an administrator (which I don't believe exist at this point) or b) the forum gets shut down.

 

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.

I'm just here because the BBCode Mode is still broken.
 
Now please go on with whatever else this thread was about.

Philosophically this thread has a lot of reasons to live.

 

If this thread is not a testament to the global need of persons raging against the socio-technological dying of the light, I don't know what is. We need to hold bad standards accountable. We must stand vigilant against the curtailment of personalized choices on the internet or we will all end up slaves of Alexa, Siri, Facebook, Google and Apple and other implements of techno-tyranny we cannot control!

The fight starts here! Make a stand and be counted!

Tbh, I don't care about cotrecting my typo's, I think almost every comment I write has a typo. I stopped caring about correcting them as its strange when people assumed that it's linked to bad literacy lol
