Just noticing this on the revised board. Am still wondering why 1) one can't edit their posts and 2) why someone can't choose to delete what they've written. Seem to remember a discussion a while back where The Well's policy of 'owning your own words' was thought to be a decent model in so far as people taking responsibility for what they wrote and for maintaining a level of accountability.
What are my options if say, I write something that turns out to be untrue about a person here or if in reviewing what I wrote I realize I may have crossed a social or legal line that contributes nothing to either the thread or the board community? Just a single example here but one that I'm sure many others could add to. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm finding myself more and more uncomfortable that what I write, what I say and the revelation of personal thoughts and opinions are grist for potential commodification by the project and that my 'ownership' of what I like to think is original and unique is somehow in jeapordy.
