No. of Recommendations: 0
The inability to edit posts was to prevent people from going back and reposting their recommendations after the fact, because hindsight is 20/20.

These boards are freebies so I don't get greedy with 'asks' or see the effectiveness of complaining too much.

That said, I don't really care if someone reposts their recommendations - that's their problem - although I could see some people being offended by it. It would be nice, though, to be able to edit simple typos, and bad or partial links that were inadvertently copied. The editing time/date stamp has been a feature of quite a few applications and document markup for many, many years. That could solve both problems as a simple "last edit by poster" would indicate that changes have been made.

Ah, the wish list :)
