My older sister just posted this status on her Facebook, (note that “Daizey” is her daughter, and “Me” is referring to my sister):
“Daizey: “You know what’s creepy about the mailman?” Me: “No Daizey, what’s creepy about the mailman?” Daizey: “He’s like a stalker, he knows where we live!”"
How are you not supposed to? I think there is an equally valid answer to ‘What gives me the right to?’.
It’s generally accepted that editing someone’s post is not something on does; at least not without asking the original author first. People cause all sorts of trouble because of editing someone else’s post. It is a feature that we believe shouldn’t be there and it causes less problems if everyone accepts that it shouldn’t be done, rather than people pick-and-choose when it is acceptable to do so.
Not supposed to edit people’s posts. Spelling mistakes can be annoying, but it’s not really your place to fix it; and, like the last girl, some people don’t appreciate it too much either. Best just to leave it alone.
