You now have 45 minutes to edit your post. We had some trouble with some people going back and "redacting" or "blanking" their posts, so this puts an end to that problem.

I've noticed that on some threads. I guess I'll have to be more meticulous when I post now. It just stinks because there's one little thing I want to edit… Oh well, I'll get over it.

I wish you hadn't done that because occasionally I make a mistake (senior moment maybe) and notice it the next day or
sometime later, I like the option of correcting it. Occasionally my computer acts up when posting here too, maybe the
site and maybe windows vista or bell south, I don't know which but it results in something going in or out of my post that I
did not intend.
Another thing, occasionally when I have had to dig for information I will find something else later on and would like to add
it to my original post rather than do a whole new post.
Just my thoughts but I will respect your move.

Unfortunately, we had to do it. If you see a truly outstanding error that must be corrected, please contact a moderator or an admin.
