Do they give the poster some of the edit time, all of the edit time? Or is the post subject to
removal and points penalties immediatly. The members excommunication to be reviewed.
Say a member posts a reply? A nasty lil retort then after a few moments he cools a bit and
returns to retify his mistake but the police were already there?
Also I've seeen a few times the person who had his post taken down and replaced by a crimescene sign.
Took down the sign to post a new reply of apology.
Is this kosher?
I thought this was a violation? Or was I, Hello?

Given that it takes rational thought to be able to turn on a computer, hook it up to the internet, load up a web browser, type in a URL, put in a password, pick a forum, start a thread and type something, why should allowances suddenly be made for the fact that someone loses that rationality when typing out a post?
In other words, its about personal responsibility.
People are responsible for what they type, when they type it. The act of typing out a post is, in itself, a combination of thought, dexterity in typing and proof reading as you go along. Its not down to the board staff to proof read and edit out peoples rash thoughts, its down to the individual to respond in a rational and civil manner.

How rational do you have to be to allow someone to point out your mistakes and not retort when you are an unforgiving person?
