If it's any consolation to you, this format is fairly newish to us too and we weren't as civilized about it as you are now. I am impressed by your (almost)
a2k (able2know) isn't a sole philosophy forum, we're melting different topics, ideas and nationalities, so be gentle when some of us don't consider English as
our mother tongue.
As for the edit function: you can edit your post as long as someone hasn't
replied yet. I actually like this function as previously posts were altered to
the extend that it was completely out of context to the original and all follow-up
posts made little sense.
Welcome to a2k, enjoy and stay out of the politic forum
