If you have the freedom to say it, then you should have the freedom to change it as well. People do change their minds do they not?
Removing the ability to be able to change what one said is basically taking away part of that freedom to make changes.
This happens when Moderators decide what is and is not proper based on their ideals and values, which may differ then the OP.
If you do not like what was posted then don't read it. If it is due to thread drift and the OP is involved then BUTT OUT, the OP in regards to post is the owner of that thread and should have the right to post and continue to post as s/he feels.
Of course this does take into consideration the " hate, discrimination, sex, slave, dumba$$ remarks that would be NOT wanted nor needed. We all joined with agreeing to the posting rules........
Over Moderation will kill anything, we're all adults here, some act like children (Nancy's) and some have great things to say.
If people really don't like what has been said, then report the post state you reason why and moderate properly.
For those that do not know clicking the little red triangle on the right hand corner will notify moderators of a post that needs attention, you also have a place to submit your reason for reporting the post. The diplomatic solution to Trolls, losers, halfwits and dumba$$ alike.
Get to many complaints and they loose the ability to post.
Another diplomatic solution.
