What the FSCK is the matter with people? I've posted reasonable
corrections or questions in reply to a few posts and then people
either edit their posts so history is totally fscked, or they rail
against me (in the CB as well) and THEN edit their posts to correct
their originals, with no mention of the fact made in the post. Is
there or is there not a history at this site? My suggestion is that
NOONE be allowed to change the content of their posts *period*. Either
make it simply impossible or at the very least make it only possible
to *append* to a post (at least an appendum is obvious). Changing
history is bad bad bad! No, it is worse than bad, it is a lie. Will
we support outright lying? What the hell is the problem with just
adding a correction instead of rewriting the answer or the code or
whatever? Doesn't anyone here have any freaking integrity?
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
