Moderators should not edit posts by request generally

That's the poster's problem in my view.

My interpretation of guidelines given to moderators is that we (moderators) should not edit posts generally.  It is a discretionary power granted to moderators to allow threads to be moderated with minimal disruption.

The reason is this. DPR has a general policy of ​not​ allowing unlimited edits after a post has been made.  The feeling is that such edits distort the thread ( e.g. people replying to things that are changed later can be misleading ).  A logical extension of this is that moderators should not do the edits for them.

The limited editing time window DPR allows is just to correct e.g. typos or the wrong link, or to withdraw something typed in haste.  That's all.

The principle is pretty simple - if you're not happy with the world seeing your post for all eternity then don't post it.
