I was writing a rather lengthy private message to a friend here on PC Mech. After 60 minutes, I got a popup that said I could no longer edit my PM. Why does this even exist? Personally, I think it's ridiculous. Yeah, it kinda ticked me off. I could have started a second PM but I would have lost the continuity of the first PM and therefore it would not have looked right. Yes, I understand why we have edit time limitations for regular posts. Things could get insanely confusing otherwise. But why apply it to a two-way communication? And why get involved with a private communication in the first place? Why make rules or have limitations when it is completely unnecessary?
