Suggest change of the ability to edit posts:

From a main forum setting of allowing or not allowing post editing . . . changed to an item in the setting of privileges for posters . . .

The reason(s) for doing so: to handle troll like and disruptive behavior . . . i.e. folks on probation deleting their posts and leaving holes in threads, actual trolls getting a post allowed and then having an avenue to edit post and change it to porn or some such, folks who have been gagged doing some of the same, etc., etc. . . .

As it is now employing the disallow of editing to control an single or couple of posters . . . it takes away the editing of all members of a forum . . .
