Ability to edit posts after someone has replied removed

I have got Kevin to disable the ability of users to edit posts once someone else replies to them. This will help remove some forms of forum abuse.

You will get the following error if you try to edit your post after it has been replied to – Error: You cannot edit a post after it has replies.

This is mainly to stop the abuse of the forums by users posting flames / troll posts, then removing them after other users have replied.

I am considering other actions to stop the current spate of noise from drowning out reasonable conversation in the main forums.

Not only do troll and flame posts serve to ‘noise up’ Discogs users threads, but they also dramaticaly reduce the time we have available to work on the database functionality and programing (the most important part of Discogs).
