I can understand having a limit like that if someone is posting multiple posts over a very short time frame - bangbangbang.
The problem with editing your previous post(s) is that for the reader it can often be difficult to tell what is new and what is old.
@Northern_Loki has done that several times in some of his threads, and I have sometimes had a very difficult time finding the “new” information that is buried back in old posts.
I happen to like the multi-quote option. I think that works very well - with the exception I mention below…
As far as it being easier to read one long post instead of several shorter posts with multiple edits and quotes - I dont see the difference. Its the same amount of information.
It might be spread out over a little more vertical screen space, but I dont see that as a problem.
I think what is a problem is that people tend to ignore or not read loooooong posts. They will read the first line or two, then skip off to something else without bothering to read the rest.
I tend to post long posts, and more often than not, someone will reply and its obvious they didnt bother to read the entire post.
Thanks for disabling that limit.
