Can they really edit user's posts?

Can they? Yes.

Do they? Very, very, rarely

It's not EVER supposed to happen.

But it does happen. Nothing to be ashamed of. Its OK to acknowledge the power.

Heh, I actually thought the power had been revoked several years ago to tell you the truth. Wasn't until somebody else pointed it out that I realized it was still an option. One I won't use. It's not necessary

That doesn't count, it's in the BEt thread and anything goes there for the win.

I guess I don't understand this crazy hard on to demand things be available online in perpetuity.

It's a forum post. Made by someone you don't know.

Where is the value in this? The value comes from knowing the user. Here, it's by online reputation. Aric developed a reputation after a while as a guy who knew something about engineering and gear testing. The only reason his posts have any value is because you have seen his whole body of work.

By preserving his entire body of work, you are forcing him against his will to remain on here. That's lame. Any one of his posts on its own has no value. They only have value when taken as a whole.

I don't understand your argument. If the bolded premises are true, they would seem to support the need for long-term on-line availability of posts. But, that said, I don't accept the premise that you need to view a large number of a user's posts in order to make an accurate judgment about the user's knowledgeability. Proof by counterexample: Read any single post by rgold and any single post by subantz.

Your vast library of posts has proved that you are a douche; this can also be determined through just one or two posts.

Fuck you, too.

Send me a PM at some point if you regain your sanity. In the meantime...

Hilarious.
