Rob, didn't I write that it is my personal issue? You didn't have to explain it to me, when I literally wrote the same. I have my reasons to ask for edit option, but if everyone is happy about the way it works, that's ok. I guess.
This forum might be somehow specific (I don't really think so, unless there will be some very restrictive rules, but for now this community is too small to see those issues), but let's switch to steam community forums, steamgifts discussions, reddit and many, many more. All of them have edit option available and believe me, this is very useful. Not only for the purpose of removing some mistakes you did in your post. Sometimes people want to keep updating their post, so that everyone can go back to this one post using the same link all the time. It is often needed for OP, but every now and then, other posts need some edits too. Without it, it's not quite possible to create long term threads.
But ok, you can stick to KISS principle 🙂 Less problems for you.
