Still just so weird to be treated like a child man!!
we all have to be so politically correct can you dig it!!
Nobody is treating anyone like a child, nor is there any attempt at political correctness. The forum software doesn't allow some folks to have a long edit time and others only a short one, nor can one subforum be treated differently than another. It is one size fits all setting, that's the entire story.
The five minute edit window was put into place a long time ago for several reasons. Two that come to mind ... (1) folks editing their logs after a few 'fixes' were applied and causing problems with subsequent cleanup efforts since there were no longer 'before' and 'after' logs to compare, and (2) a few members starting up their flamethrower and then editing out their comments after the eruption started to make it seem they hadn't been involved.
