    What the heck happened ?? :confused:

    I just noticed it's gone as of today.
    Did it just get whacked with a new design to not allow post updates after 5 minutes??

    Compared to many others, this site was very liberal in it's perpetual edit button. I'm glad to see a time lock feature, a lot of people use the edit button to be very slippery...felt like Orwell's 1984 around here sometimes.

    We have had some abusers of the edit button here, so the decision was made to limit its use.
    Basically, don't say it if you don't mean it or if it isn't fit to say.
