Reference Grockle's request for assistance re poster accusations, I have pm'd him asking if he's referring to me, but now realise he's not.

However, I think it would avoid all misunderstanding, if when editing our posts, we put the reason for the edit.

And I think most people do now ...


Edited to prove a point!

I agree Vic.
Unless either the reason is obvious, or it's just for grammar/typos, or it's so instantaneous that a "discontinuity" is unlikely, I (and I think most others) will usually explain or indicate edits.

I sometimes do nothing more than put my edit italics, and had assumed that was fairly clear?

I also type quickly and only see the errors after I've posted. I then re-read the thing and find there are some other things I wanted to say so the second version tends to be longer and larger.

I don't see revision as a problem as long as it is done before any reply to the thread has been made.

After that there should be some clarification of why the edit took place and if not there is no reason why it can't be asked for or shouldn't be given.

We have experienced examples of a poster altering his posts in order to divert criticism or confuse an issue in the past but ONLY one case that I am aware of and he is no longer a member of this commmunity.
