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 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.
