New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
In my opinion this feature is detrimental to discussion.
Things are said and that is that. You can retract or change opinion, but to overwrite (or delete) a previous comment is disengenuous and unhelpful for discussion. Besides, you can't do it in speech as much as you might want to!
In a previous thread a message was removed that essentially changed the conversation and appearance of what I was saying. So much so, someone emailed me to say they were offended by what appeared to them was bullying, when in fact it was v. much the opposite.
Let's edit this feature out
just me? ok...
