I dunno... it may be that data collected; reasons people go back and change what they've written, is worth something to someone, somewhere. This
information could then be used to classify certain types of posters.... such as:
82% of semi-conservative believers in UFOs return to edit their posts by a single word, and use correct grammar.
78% of neo-somnambulists return to edit at least 10 words by 2.56703 letters each.
55% of newbies return to edit their introductions by removing 3.1 entire words and replace them with small, furry woodland creatures.
38.6% of those who eat Cap'n Crunch for breakfast end up at the dentist's office where they return to correct entire sentences while under the effects
of laughing gas.
This kind of stuff is priceless to those who regurgitate mindless percentages into completely unconnected facts to then sell to large corporations who
don't have the slightest idea what is going on out here.
I'll bet those in the ATS front office are making enough off of this info to buy a case of Sailor Jerry's once a year...
