I'm not the expert, but you can use "modify" to edit if that helps.

In case you missed the previous posts regarding the elimination of the delete option, here is one of the posts concerned.

http://www.conservativesforum.com/cgi-bin/conservatives-forum/YaBB.pl?num=153088...

But as someone else explained, there is a "Modify" option still I do believe.  But there may be a 24 hour time limit to modify a post.  Not sure though.

To me, the main difference from CF compared to some other political forums, posters do not usually spend their time name calling all day long, going mono e mono with some poster they consider a troll, as if they have arch enemies.  Not to mention how some elsewhere obviously double dip and use more than one id at a time.  I call it 'addicted to chaos'.  Some posters elsewhere spend their entire day posting like immature children and it makes me wonder how they even have time to spend with their family, which really should be their priority.  Was once part of that idiocy back several years ago and finally learned to let go for more mature pastures.  It is probably why stats on our forum may not have as many posts in total, but dang near the same (if not more) topics.  That's because what they allow to be posted without consequence, would not be tolerated here.  Some posters in the past thought they could get away with that nonsense here.  It's why such posters are no longer with us, as they usually see a 'quick' exit, if they are not willing to learn how to behave.

I hope with whatever differences you feel there are, with perhaps some limitations compared to another forum, I hope you can find a way to find posting here as acceptable and continue to offer some time posting with us.

I have read comments in other places (websites) where one comment leads to endless silly posts.  Just like what you are describing.  Juvenile name calling, insulting, nothing pertaining to the topic.  I just quickly exit and feel disappointed there are so few good comments.

I wish that wouldn't happen, but it is so common.

It's why so many have found this forum to be a breath of fresh air after having bad experiences on some other forums.  Smiley

That's the reason I'm here.

I was on another "conservative" board (who shall remin un-named), since 2004, but the liberal trolls took over and ruined it.  Angry

I, too, have been on other forums that were supposedly advocating for "fair debate". I found out quite quickly that trolls would arrive and begin lying their butts off. Many of the liberals in the mix lied so much and so often that I simply threw in the towel and left.

Example, remember the "MS-13 are animals" recent event? Even when the entire piece of video was posted (where the lady asked Trump directly about MS-13 gangsters) then Trump responded with the "animals" comment...the trolls still insisted it was being directed toward all immigrants! This is the type of lying I'm referring to. It's just impossible to reason with people who lie like that.
