this is one of the anti-spam measures we use on our forum.

Thank you.
I just wanted to second that not being able to edit your own posts is a real pain in the butt. That's just my posting style and after reading it again, I usually make some changes immediately. I also like to enhance my posts, when I re-read them the next day or so. Seeing your own mistakes stare you in the face forever is plain and simple torture!

But I just learned in this thread that after 10 posts I will be given the privilege to edit my own posts (yay!!!) and now use this post as an opportunity to achieve two things at once:
- coming closer to that goal
- expressing my explicit disdain for a forum not allowing the edit function out of some SPAM paranoia. Sorry to be so blunt, but I was always against collective punishment of the good members of a group for the misbehavior of a few members. That's like punishing your paying customers with extreme DRM measures to try to prevent your software from being hacked. We all saw what happened to companies employing extreme DRM measures to their software, music or movies. They either got overtaken by their competitors (and went out of business as a result) or changed their minds eventually (and dropped their DRM attempts at some point). Or the whole industry looked like a dinosaur and got replaced by a different business model - like it or not.
