If it is the opening post of a thread which is removed, I assume the poster lacked the courage of whatever conviction made them make the post in the first place.

If the removed post has been removed within a minute or so and directly above/below another post by the same poster, I assume it was a double post.

If a post is removed within a series of argumentative posts, I assume the poster had second thoughts and wanted to avoid moderation of that post.

I would prefer for posts to be able to show edits made, so posters cannot claim innocence when they have made contentious comments.

People add info to their posts, I've done it a bunch of times cause I forget to add something in. People correct typos, and make it easier to read.

Some just don't want their post to be seen a while down the road cause of drama or they don't wanna be attacked for it. I've seen people nuke every sentence in threads nothing moddable or damaging to em, so I'll assume its to save their image or avoid stalkers.

And others do it to cover their ass and edit out something that would be modded and keep the rest of the post.

In general I don't mind edits they aren't a confession of I did something wrong to me. The lack of seeing prior edits is a major abusable flaw though.

I dislike people abusing it to do ensure the damage is done by letting their target read it then editing it to avoid trouble. Other sites I use you see every edit they made. So they don't get away with saying:
OP:lol dumbass
EDIT: hmm yes a good point i think the lvl 5 boss was a tough battle

This site however you don't have the luxury of seeing post history edits. Backfires if someone quotes em though.

Thank you for your comments.

New question (I've also added it to opening post):

Do you think all edited posts, should be seen and not covered up?

I quite like this, even though I have made angry posts before and I'm sure I will im the future. The only problem is I edit numerous times because of spelling and/or grammar mistakes even though some still slip past me. I might read the same post several times and not pick up on grammar or spelling - so in away seeing all my edits may cause disruption ^_^ it can be at times frustrating for me.

I think mods should see them, to see if people derail then cover up the evidence.

I think the average joe should only see the 1st edit or none of them. Some people choose to bury the hatchet by editing their posts. Others just don't wish for a post to be seen by others down the road. That would make it so they can have privacy and be left alone when they change their post, since they chose to change it.

Either this or that they accidentally double posted.
