It probably is possible - I don't know enough about the software to say any more than that - but only Jeremy has access to do this and would be quite an overhead to put on him.

Editing a post on an online forum like Linuxquestions.org where information is shared could be used in any number of genuine situations - for instance, updating an old post with more information, or updating broken links etc.

I think edited posts should get repeated in the thread with a "patched/rectified below" tag on the original.

Best

Submitting patches to correct a spelling errors is a bit too formal and difficult to read for a forum format IMHO. I would like someone finding a post I submitted after using the search function or google to get the corrected post right off the bat.
