Continuing the discussion from How do I get srcset and fancybox working properly in Microsoft Edge?
You are a moderator I assume so please don’t think I am disagreeing.
I very much understand what you are saying about changing what the original post says. I agree that is not good. However it would not be a problem if the post was added to and that type of thing is often done in other forums.
I agree that we should read the entire thread. However in this case the original problem did not exist in the original post. The original post was no help. Something should have been done about that. In other forums moderators do edit posts when appropriate. In StackOverflow, the most popular forums, members do ask that a question be revised when it is not clear.
If you don’t want the original post to be edited then the forum software should not allow it. That is impractical so the question becomes what is appropriate and what is not.
