For all of the people who complain that this feature doesn't exist there will be a whole other segment of people who will complain that too many people are quoting others' posts, that it takes up to much screen space and that they have to do a lot of scrolling. Jack wagons going back trying to change their story and history otherwise; no thank you. ORIGINAL posts in the For Sale or Event forums; maybe, with the edits CLEARLY marked like a strikeout of the original post material and the change or added material in red. Besides, there is a mechanism for change: ask a moderator if it REALLY has to happen. Some moderators may not like to do it for whatever reasons; there are others. As far as I know it is NOT a hard and fast policy that an expired post can't be changed. Of the four other forums that I am an active member of, all but one doesn't have a similar expiration rule in affect.
