I for one, find this button extremely valuable. I find that when I am typing, I think what I am going to type faster than I actually type it. Which results in me leaving out words, punctuation and other various things that can contribute to bad grammar. So how valuable is the edit/delete button to you?

I tried putting my cursor in Badger's avatar and hitting, "delete," but it doesn't work. Other than that, it's quite helpful cleaning up after over-ranting.

(Just kidding, folks!)

Who the heck voted that they were a grammar extrordinaire? I refuse to believe anybody at this site is and extrordinaire.

Never mind that question, I don't know how I got deluded into thinking someone claimed to be a grammar extrordinaire.

I find the poll results alarming. Either we have a heap of extrordinaires, or people are to embarrassed to acknowledge their complete dependance on the edit/delete button to turnout coherent, grammatically correct posts. You guys better be careful, anymore of this wrong doing to the edit/delete button and joe will have to delete it!!! So HA!!!
