Post subject:  Editing posts

The time limit for editing/deleting posts was instituted because a very few members were abusing the system and the spirit of forums where the purpose is to share information.

Some were making inflammatory posts, then going back and removing or modifying the offensive material. The result was that members who responded to the first version looked foolish and the Moderators had yet another mess to clean up.

Others were posting valuable information but then going back and removing the entire content.

But the time limit is a hardship for many of our members, and we have decided to remove it.

We have adopted a different policy to deal with those whose edits and deletions we consider to be abuses of the system. (The system keeps track of edits and deletions. )

Their usernames will be placed in the Moderation Queue, meaning that all their submissions will require Moderator approval before posting.
