Right! Now that context is provided, I know what you mean. In general when something appears after the words "mod edit" it means that a moderator
has deemed that something needed to be added to the post involved for some reason. Generally speaking mods dont interfere with a post or thread unless
it is absolutely vital, for instance in the event of a violation of T&C or posting guidelines.
In this case the wise mod provided a warning to those members who are vulnerable to extreme emotional expression, that the video contained content
that might effect them negatively, but that is, in my expirience, pretty rare for them to do. In fact, this is , I think, the first time I have been
aware of such a thing, but no doubt it has happened before, and with good reason. I happen to know that one of our members here has an extreme
reaction to emotion provoking subject matter, and user posts, so this warning was well placed I think.
I say that because I can watch a video of a mans head getting blown off and eat my dinner smiling, but that kid wanting to get away, and not being
able to hear thier own voice was... deeply troubling to say the least.
