Many (most?) forums have similar policies. I assume the concern is that users will edit or alter their original remarks in reaction to other users' replies, effectively re-writing history and screwing up the flow of the thread.

To me this is the first and still is forum doing that. Others, including different Benz forums, have no time limit to edit your own posts/threads. To be honest, I have just a handful of forums I registered as a member.

I'm on dozens of forums, mostly technical...and not one limits the OP's edit time. Stoopid rule.
