    Has anyone else noticed we cannot edit posts when replying to them?
    (apart from deleting text)

    That means we cannot clarify text. For example explaining
    who or what a pronoun in the original text stood for.

    Is this an improvement?

    you're talking about replying to your own post, in order to clarify said post???

    so where do we go from here???
    it was a thorn in the side of management to have folks changing the words of forum posters, so that option was entirely eliminated...
    even tho i was an egregious offender of that technique, i tend to think, like @HandyAndy, that this is a good thing...

    i also note that a quoted post is indicated with a yellow bar...

    change is inevitable, desirable, relentless...

    If you hit the quote when replying to a post you can edit for a certain amount of time.
    It just doesn't have the reply/quote they appear to be seperate.

    it is possible to remove spaces in offending posts...
    probably formatting options as well...
