I long ago quit posting on the Cafe, after I was banned. It’s easy enough to get another set of IDs, but it’s just not worth it. I have nothing I want to post, that’s within the Round Man’s rules anyway.
I do enjoy reading the posts on a periodic basis. Unfortunately, when I read posts I remember why I detest these people some much. As I write this, there’s a post in the Tech area asking about editing ones own posts. Actually, if you look, this question has been asked more than once. That pompous Chief of Staff will invariably reference something else, implying that the poster was too damn stupid or lazy to do it himself. This time he says:
Here’s the explanation from the rules and etiquette forum.
It goes on to cite Brooks terminally boring missive and says you can only edit within the 1st 30 minutes and then only if no one has responded.
There’s two things seriously wrong here:
1. This rule is buried deep in the bowels of a massively dull post by Mein Brooks. Only a person that could eat raw slugs wouldn’t have spit up well before reaching this point.
2. More importantly, here’s the Cafe F.A.Q on the issue:
You may edit your own posts at any time, unless the topic is locked. Just go to the thread where the post to be edited is located and you will see an edit icon on the line above your message. Click on this icon and edit the post. No one else can edit your post, except for the forum moderator or the Magic Cafe administrator.
You see, Mr. Chief, we’re not as stupid as you continually imply.
