I understand, although don't agree with, the 5 minute editing rule. What I don't understand is why the 5 minutes keeps running while the post is being edited. That seems to be an unreasonable policy. A member should have as much time to carefully compose the edit as he or she had to compose the original post. I just spent a few minutes collecting my thoughts, and entering text in an edit, just to told my time had expired when I went to save the edit. How rude is that?
