Subject: Strange forum display/editing
 

Just  probably  some  minor  glitch  in  the editing  function  .   . In one reply to an OP, I replied "Sell the kid."
Several hours later, when I logged back into CG, I wanted to see how the thread was going and my post (just under the OP's original) was blank, except for my initial.  My impression was that a moderator had wiped out my entry for being insensitive, so I logged in and went to edit my reply in a more concilliatory manner.  When I clicked on edit, the original, highly ironic, entry still appeared as I had originally written it.  At this point, I just hit the 'cancel' button, resolving to have no further involvement with my reply or the thread in general.  The screen then reverted back to the beginning of the thread and there was my original reply as written.
Just F.Y.I.

Just so you know the moderators will never edit a member's posting. If there is a rules violation, we will delete the posting. In certain situations, we will email a member instructing them to make a change, but we will never modify a posting.

Besides, insensitivity is not a rule violation (unless it's a personal attack). We are not the polite police - members can post idiotic things all they want! :-) If a member violates a rule we have to step in - otherwise we use a very light hand in moderating.
