I admit I have tendencies to have typo errors. There are times when I missed to type a single key of the keyboard and there are times when I get to press keys I am not suppose to press. Whenever I noticed that I end up with a typo error, the first thing I do is to fix it right away but I am a human so there are times when I end up not noticing my mistake.

This is how dangerous a typo error can be:

(You are giving someone an advice)

What you want to type:

"Don't worry, your haters can't destroy you"

And you end up typing this:

" Don't worry, your haters can destroy you"

Just imagine if that happened on a site where with no edit button or the edit button have a time limit and you discovered your mistake 24 hours later. This makes me wonder, why many forum owners don't let their members edit their mistakes or why do they put time limit on editing?

you could just report the post or ask mod or admin to edit it.
or just make a new reply.
