While I appreciate the ability to do so, I have noticed that if I am replying to someone & they are in the process of editing what they have previously posted, it sometimes makes what I am saying now irrelevant or out of context.

Has anyone else had this experience?

Actually....yes. Just one of those things that you get used to after awhile.

Not always necessarily mods. I've gone in after the fact and deleted a post of mine before anyone has responded. If anyone was trying to respond while I was deleting, they'd get a message about it when they hit post.

Sometimes, we are just correcting typos that we noticed in the original post.

This is related to posts that become out of date.

I think I am growing emotionally so fast because of this MS Forum. As I read some of my posts from several months ago they seem to be history now. When I post something I may soon grow out of it.

Also, if someone were to think I was contradicting myself, it might just be because my perspective has changed.

This gives me a happy feeling. \:\) Also I am happy for the MS Forum and intend to become a member tomorrow.

Interesting thread! I look back at some of the stuff I posted when I was new here, and man, is that ever an eye-opener!!!! It helps me a lot to look at that old stuff and see how far I have come. I don't feel any need to edit anything, but yes, it does sometimes feel odd looking at a post of mine when I now feel so differently.

Where new posts are concerned I usually only edit if I see typos, words missing, a phrase that's unclear (there's an opening for comments! \:D ), etc. As for the rest, I try to take the attitude that this is me, for better or worse, and one of my tasks as a survivor is to become comfortable with being me and expressing what i think and how I feel.

Much love,
Larry

Bumping this because I thought the issue needed to be raised again.

I had an experience earlier where a post I responded to was edited by its originator to completely change original tone
& perceived intent from attacking someone else to now being "victimized" by me.

I appreciate the efforts of the Mods & the ability to notify them of inappropriate posts or misplaced threads/topics which might benefit from being addressed in a different forum.

However, accountability is an editable virtue as is integrity it seems?

Bumping this again because in the last week I have had 2 men here edit their posts after the fact,
significantly changing the tone & content of their responses.
They also neglected to use the handy reason for edit feature

Am I being petty or is this kinda disturbing?

To address the original post in this thread, something I've always done as a matter of course is to always edit twice. The first time, I quickly add "-Editing-" or something to the bottom of my post, and then re-edit it with the actual edit, unless it is a very quick edit or typo correction or something. I don't know if it's ever been noticed or whatever but I do it anyway.

Just a possible suggestion of etiquette if anyone's interested.
