It's not like you would view a post that has an edit tag as 'inferior' and not worth reading or something . . . right?

SkipShipman, there is still much use for it.
On debates, which can happen on real time. It is nice to have such a thing.
Say for example, I make a statement. Someone quotes it and the statement is rather racist in nature or something else like that. I then edit it and put something else in and accuse the other member of lying.
The edit time stamp, limits the ability for this to happen.

On pages such as in the Board Information, this tag can give a reader the indication of how up-to-date the info is...
Stating this tag is redundant and pointless is far from true.
