Why there is no editing option after the submission of a question?
There's a very practical reason for it. On other Q&A sites way back when, it was a common misuse of the sites to ask questions in inflammatory ways and then later change the wording to make the people who had already answered sound like horses' arses, idiots, or bullies.
While I'd like to be able to fix my grammatical errors and reword things I later realize don't make much sense, I would not like to see the misuses that come with allowing the questions to be changed.
Perhaps this may be the reason behind, very well said. Thanks kylyssa
I never thought of it this way, but you're right.
I suppose everyone should adopt something I've learned to do,
and that is writing what you are going to say into text edit, and checking it for spelling and grammar errors before posting anywhere
I'd never thought of that because...it's something I just wouldn't do. My integrity is highly important to me, and I can't imagine trying to make other folks look stupid.
At the same time, I could see where this might happen.
Yup me, I tend to be a grammar/spelling Nazi, and any time I see an error crop up in one of my posts it drives me buggy, so I'd love to be able to fix that. I also have a tendency to edit a post halfway through and sometimes that turns into half sentences that change directions in the middle.
The grammar or spelling mistakes and typos of others doesn't bother me near as much as my own, as I tend to hold myself (perhaps stupidly) to a very high standard.
That's probably true of many of us writers.
I appreciate your explanation!
Oh, it was miserable. It put me off answering questions on such sites for years and until after most of them had put something in place to prevent questions from changing.
I hate it when people twist my words by changing their context. A mercenary hate group here in Michigan took a sentence out of a piece I wrote on homelessness referring to the fact that it often isn't safe for homeless people near homeless shelters to make it sound like homeless people are dangerous. They used it on a flier to sell mercenary services because a homeless shelter opened up in town. I kid you not, they train people in the use of assault weapons and have mercenaries for hire they claim will patrol and protect you from homeless people if you live near a homeless shelter.
The people I was saying weren't safe near shelters were the homeless people! Folks like those who took my words out of context are probably just the sort of people that make such areas unsafe for homeless people.
Wow. Just freaking wow.
Homelessness is one of the subjects near and dear to my heart.
While I've never been technically homeless I've come darn close more than once.
As such I respect and when I can, attempt to help my local homeless folks. Also consider that if you need inside info, your local homeless just might be the ones who are tapped into what's going on.
I was, while I could afford to, a member of Food Not Bombs, a local (and national) group that attempts to provide food to the hungry. It ticked me off that Orlando did everything possible to make feeding the hungry illegal.
I was floored when I read they did everything to make feeding the homeless illegal "wow" so it it officially illegal to feed the homeless? That's just unethical Sham on them
They can feed them, but only in designated areas
Basically it's illegal to feed more than 3 people without getting a permit. Getting said permit is very challenging. (And the rules change every couple weeks just to keep us on our toes.) There are designated places where you can feed more than 3 people. These are generally outside of the area where the homeless can reach comfortably. They are usually also in bad neighborhoods and not conducive to safety for anyone involved.
Disney and its minions would like to put on the happy face for our tourist clientele. Therefore they do any/everything to hide our homeless and drive them from our streets.
Just the other day a friend and I were discussing that if Disney really wanted to do good, they could easily create a shelter and soup kitchen and a bus system to take the folks to Disney jobs. (Disney always needs cooks, cleaners, hotel maids, etc.) Not likely to happen, since Walt was the last one there who cared.
