For years we didn't use the EDIT feature here on the forum, but the nice guy that I am turned it back on. And then someone has to go and abuse it. This is EXACTLY the very reason why the edit feature was turned off.
The main reason why we never used the edit feature was to PROTECT the content here on the forum. We the staff of the forum cannot protect the content or members themselves if we have people here going back to their posts and deleting information.
If I see something like this happen again, I'll pull the edit option permanently. The edit option is to only go back and EDIT posts, not DELETE content. ie, misspelling.
