Perhaps to spam the date for those who don't have a good memory for when the OP was posted

The one thing I really don't like about the edit thing is I wish it gave you a few minutes to fix silly errors like spelling mistakes, I often do this and notice right after posting then I have the edit thing in the post forever.
I know I should check more but I often post when I'm tired and even do silly things like have random words that shouldn't even be there.

It is too easy on this site to edit a post and completely change it, and the only thing there in edit is the datestamp. It would be great to have the time by the [edited on] thingamajig. The time zone difference thing would be able to figure out somehow.
So yes, I second the fact that there should be a time listed when edited.
