I hate to criticize, but why can't we delete or at least edit our posts? It would be nice to be able to go back and edit a post (especially when one finds that the phone's spell-check actually inserted something stupid).

Hmm...okay. Big process to edit. I guess I'm just going to have to make sure I don't mess up when responding with my phone. :-)

You can.

Click: User Profile

Click: Log In

You will then see your: Most Recent Posts

If it's within a certain frame of time, there will be an "edit" button with a pencil icon and you can click that and proceed with editing your post.

See, I'm editing this one to make a point. Once you click the pencil, you then have to click another log in window to "Edit Post" and here I am editing and about to click the "Save Message" button below where I'm typing.

If you have not checked the "Show list of my most recent posts when editing my profile" listed in Preferences it will not work. I tried many times but could not find this.

But now that I have I see that it works.
Thanks
Rich

Since I never make mistakes I don't need to worry about editing my posts. But it's good information for those who are not perfect like me. :-)

Dennis I am lucky I walk on water so I guess I am blessed, and like you never make misteaks!

Well just to be clear, I don't make mistakes either. However the autocorrect on my phone likes to make stupid assumptions.

I made a mistake once. Well, actually, it was more than once.
To be honest, I have made a few mistakes. OK, ... quite a lot,
really. In fact, I make so many mistakes, I should probably change
my name to "Oops!" or "Dammit!". Come to think of it, I hear
"Dammit, Burger!" a lot already.

Must be nice to be perfect. :-)

I thought I was wrong once but was mistaken. :-)
