Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There is no "blacklisting" here.

But, to avoid deletion of diaries and comments when people leave in anger, site editors systematically remove those posters' editing permission. This is not an accusation against that person, it's a simple precaution. As you left at one time in somewhat emotional circumstances, the same precaution was no doubt taken. I'll check.

Yes. I've restored your editing permission now. Sorry that was forgotten after you came back.

Not for comments. I too would love to be able to correct typos or add the words and phrases I left out in my rush to post.

Ah! That's it indeed. I can edit a diary, just not a comment. I thought we were talking about comments, and obviously I was mistaken. Sorry.

Comments and polls cannot be edited and, I think, rightly.  Granted it's a pain when one wishes to correct the obvious typo -- in my case almost always 2 milliseconds after hitting the "Post" button.  ;-)  The alternative is having creating a ruckus a jerk could go back, change their jerkitude, and then "innocently" ask what all the fuss is about.

Wordpress, IIRC, has an comment Edit feature on a five minute timer, after that the comment is locked.

Adopted after one case where a trusted user deleted maybe half a dozen diaries before they could be stopped.
