    ADMIN WARNING: The 'edit' feature was provided in order to provide posters with an opportunity to make spelling corrections and minor stylistic changes to comments. Using the feature to change the meaning of a comment and effectively derail a thread is out of order.

    The 'edit' function has temporarily been suspended until provisions enabling the reversion of edits are made.

    There is a middle way. On some forums I'm on you can only edit something until somebody replies to it, i.e you can't change something retroactively after the discussion has begun but you can change something quickly if you notice a spelling mistake, etc. when you re-read it after posting. Is this feasible here?

    PS What does "the reversion of edits" mean?

    I'm afraid Adam, you are missing the obvious! All of the armoury of thought suppression are being brought to bear. When was the last post from OGW allowed? even though there has been a "moderator" on this site, for a considerable time tonight. Think about it Adam?It's not moderation, it' censorship! Steve, the mad northern heed banger.

    How can I possibly receive a warning while I am subject to a moderation queue. The man has gone insane with the power.Prediction: Comrade Steve Colborne and socialist punk will be next

    The method you mention sounds good but probably not easily achieveable with what we have here. What I meant was that the aim is to get previous edits to be stored on the system then a post can be reverted to a previous version if necessary.

     Is there a problem with the edit feature for this post? and why the picture does not appear? http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/forum/general-discussion/cameron-and-clegg
