"It would be a way to avoid, or at least lessen, hurt feelings. It would also give posters more control over what they post.

??? Seems feelings are beinging hurt by bob right now...
Anyway FWIW.I dunno, but on the site I post on, I think people edit their posts not because they are uncivil, but cuz we post it and we feel dumb for what we said, or upon re reading the post a little later, we realize it may 'sound' wrong.
Or maybe we disclosed too much and we want to retract some info.
But I dunno, but I doubt it ever has a whole lot to do w/civility. People tend to be very careful of each others feelings as best we can. So if something 'sounds' kinda harsh, we tend to give the poster the benefit of the doubt.
Seems to work good most of the time...

Bob....are you LISTENING at all???
seems noboddy here so far is really even interested in WHY are you persuing this????

I go now damnit.
