    There are two reasons why forum owners don't allow editing for too long after a post is made. Both are very good reasons.

    1. It keeps people honest and makes them think about what they're posting...no going back and making someone look like a jerk by editing your post that they responded to.

    2. A common spamming tactic is to post something that doesn't look like spam, wait until nobody's going to see it anymore, then go back and edit spam into it.
