It is set that way to prevent people from going back and changing their posts once discussion has moved on. Too many times people have changed their stories if someone didn't agree with them, or simply made a thread confusing by altering posts.

There is no where else in life where you can say something and then take it back or completely change it later, and thus this setting on the forum. People need to think about what they are saying before they post, and a 10 minute window to change their minds if they wish they hadn't said something is more than sufficient.
I thought that was why message boards have a quote feature. I just found a post I made that auto correct changed a spelling, and I cannot correct it.

However, had there been a heated discussion, someone can quote the post and the author cannot change the quote, ensuring the first message stays intact.

Frustating, it is.

Exactly! That's the reason there is only a 10 min limit. You'll see we Mods also get stuck, I can't tell you how many typos I see after the 10 min and know they have to stay....

That would only work if the person happened to quote and respond to the post before the original person could delete it or edit it. That isn't always the case, and many people don't use the quote function and just reply. It's easier that way and keeps things more concise.

I don't understand why it is frustration. People should think before they post and not put something out there that they don't want out there forever. In real life we can't take back things we say. Once they leave the mouth they are out of our control. There is no reason the same can't apply to things said on a message board.

Since I use to keep open several windws at the same time it has happened to me that I have answered a post in the wrong thread, but not noticed until later. It was as simple as copy my own post, put it on the wright place and ask a moderator to delete the wrong one, and they have done it. If you really made a mistake, people understand.

On a side note, this is a very active forum, so if you don't want a key word being on the first results of a Google search... don't post it here.
