I’m actually totally on board with this, since I’m someone who edits posts quite often because of typos and such.

it would have been a better argument if you had edited this post

I don’t know how this could be done. When you can’t alter the post you quote, you always have to quote the full post and can’t select a specific paragraph. Also, it would really ruin the flow of a thread if someone quotes a post, then the original poster goes back and completely removes his post and the quote also gets emptied.

And it would ruin FTFY and WYSHS.

Ceci n’est pas une signature.

If I quote a post, I’m referencing what you said, not what you’re going to say in 10 minutes after you reconsidered. What happens when something I reference in your post disappears and what I posted no longer makes any sense?

Think before you post.
