So far, it has been generally agreed that people should be able to edit their posts. You may disagree if you like, but it isn't your place tell me personally when and how to edit my posts -- particularly when the subject is everyone's ability to edit.
Some people care about mistakes and others do not. If you're of the school that doesn't, then good for you. But the policy we have now allows some not to edit themselves and others to edit as they please. The opposite would forbid everyone to do what didn't happen to suit some of us.
I'm afraid I have not expressed myself properly, sorry. I'm not against editing a post, I use this function quite often myself and I don't wish to have it changed or disabled. What I am opposing are certain arguments pro editing and certain uses of this function. In my mind, they simply feel wrong. And I would feel to be dishonest if I would change a post that somebody already has answered to.
