Uhm... I may be able to bring it back for registered users, as Google is hitting us using the guest account. There was a lot of fuckery happening behind the scenes and I figured the best way to fix it was to pull the plug temporarily and fix it at night some day.
The code is still there, it's just commented out. I'm sure someone could just put an if statement in front of it checking for a registered user and have it come back in.
It is gone for good for guests though... well... ok maybe not I may actually fix what it was doing, but probably not. Fuck the chickens.
Your analogy is similar to:
"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?" "I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?" "They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"
After some certain period of time, you can't edit your posts anymore and it becomes set it stone. I don't remember what I set it to but I do know that you can't edit a post you made in June (which is the one you're talking about here).
