The reason we have a time constraint is people come back and say they didn't post something when they did. We had a rip off scammer in the For Sale Forums that edited out a part he was selling after getting the money from the seller. I had no proof that he had actually posted the board here for sale. As you know buyers come to me first when they don't get their payment for goods. I like to keep the site uncomplicated and a time constraint on post editing has solved many problems before they can arise. That's why I have a time limit on editing posts.
