[@Engg_mithlesh](/user/profile/Engg_mithlesh) I used to have that kind of fear when I newly joined Relevant too, but whenever I consider whatever comment I was going to make and I am sure it is the truth without any bias, the fear disappears. Rest assured you wouldn't be the only observer/upholder of truth. You might want to take screenshots in some instances though, just as a layer of explaining/proofing your point later should there be need.
To those who might get confused as to what this discussion is about, here is it:
The original post made by [@ChainzeMai](/user/profile/ChainzeMai) was "hi" and it was to that I made my first comment. Some days later while reading through the feed, boom there is a contradiction between my comment and the post because [@ChainzeMai](/user/profile/ChainzeMai) had edited the post into what it is now. Interestingly and surprisingly, this edited post currently has a very high Reputation.
Now you might think that is no issue "he understands how things work now and he did the right thing, no biggie!" The pitfall is, if my first comment were to be made by someone new to Relevant, users who did not see the original post might think 'the commenter' is just looking for a means to climb the ladder of Reputation and he might get downvoted for it because obviously that comment is currently not relevant to the new edited post.
[@ChainzeMai](/user/profile/ChainzeMai) I put it to you, that was a misleading act there. You could have commented on the post, you could have made an entire new post.
I can't remember vividly now but I'm sure there has been a thread of discussion with [@Druss](/user/profile/Druss) and some other members of this community before, about the pros and cons of the post editing option.
I for one think the option is a good one, I just wish that people will make use of it the right way.
