really? whats the point of that?
And it repeats!

Nasty little critters they are. I don't know how much editing power the site has but maybe an "edited because" option is in order.
Really, how often does one explain why they edited typos....

just a thought

-actually it's bugged me for a while now.

It's a good place to put in mini rants about spell checkers, brain farts, unforseen time shifts.

I wonder how many characters the "because" box holds......

I've seen some entertaining edited by reasons...if you don't use it just ignore it...or have fun with it.

I have found great wisdom on those comments from time to time, it's also good to have a proof of editing to avoid faul play.

Maybe one in one hundred "edited because" boxes are actually edited because of something.

Possibly the facility was originally intended for Mods, who ought to give a reason for edting people's posts.
I remember seeing the mysterious "Edit because; no reason given [/edit]" on S.O.'s posts some time before the feature was rolled out for the rest of us.

P.S. If you have to edit a second time, because you've just noticed anothet typo, it's possible to edit out the first Edit notice, leaving just the one.

I've been doing that trick for years!
I love the extra time it takes to highlight and delete the second and third edited because texts!
(just so I don't appear stupid)

This is, inarguably, the greatest thread title in the history of the forum.

Yeah I do that too. So it doesn't look like I edit the same post over and over. It's an ego thing.
