Why are we so tied up about post edits? And why are we pointing out all the things that SHOULD have been edited if we don't like seeing the "Last edited by..."?

We need something to do around here....let's have a Barn Raising! *cue music*

OK, sorry about that folks. Just my weird sense of humor getting the best of me. The fact of the matter is that DC gets a LOT of traffic, and having a time limit on post edits is important so that folks who get grumpy don't come and delete all their recipes. Look at this thread for example...people are poking at each other (albeit goodnaturedly) but it just takes someone in a less than happy mood to get in a tizzy and go about deleting all their stuff prior to stomping off in a huff. I don't know about you, but I really value the stuff on here and want it to stay! I'd be pretty choked if I couldn't find kadesma's onion sauce recipe, or Buckytom's buffalo wing dip, or GB's bolognese...mmmmm!

No, not really flamers; if they're nitpicking typos, they're just annoying.

Having said that, though, take another look at the word I put in boldface.

I commented that I had found misspellings that I couldn't add to a dictionary.

I don't know where they got the idea that it was on this thread. It wasn't.

If I happen to run across the thread and the word, I'll post it, but I doubt I'll find it and my memory is too vague about the subject for me to go looking.

Even if spelled correctly, I find it too hoity toity *holding teacup with pinky extended*. Appetizers is more my style, and I don't have to look up the spelling.

Someone on a forum that attacks the content of a post or poster. For example, If you posted a proper and accurate answer to a posted question, a flamer would attack your grammar, typos etc. with the specific intent of creating controversy.

I think flamers tend not to be too interested in grammar or typos as a way of creating battles. I think of a flamer as someone who posts outrageously controversial comments usually including egregious insults or slurs intended to cause others to go into attack mode and in order to derail and burn a thread to the ground.

Thank you, Andy and SuzyQ. I've come across the word a lot, but didn't know what it was.
