If we’re going to change the code, let’s ask for the Holy Grail-the ability to edit your post after it’s posted.

Actually, on second thought, I can see why they wouldn't want to do that. It could lead to all sorts of mischief, like denying that you'd written something slanderous that you had, and then putting it down the memory hole.

That's why every existing edit feature makes a notation that the post was edited. I don't see why an edit feature would be any different in this format.
