Please leave editing alone!! Sometimes I don't see my typo UNTIL someone has quoted me. I hate to leave a bunch of fat-fingered errors lying about.
Really, if a post has been deleted, it is not intended to be read. The writer changed her mind. I had to delete a post on another forum last week because someone mistook it for promo (I was talking about covers--not MY covers--but made the mistake of linking to my blog for the example covers where I had done the original thoughts.) Apparently my misdeed started some lady's pants on fire and at that point, deleting it before a flame war started seemed the best thing to do.
