It may be the case that allowing a gross spelling errors uncorrected may provide clues to others as to just how poorly thought-out a question or answer is. But in this case, having a PG-13 word left in poor spelling is just annoying.

Earlier we were asked not to edit Closed Questions. But in this case can someone correct it?

    The notable exception to not editing a closed question is if you think you can make it in to a viable question that would be valid and unique. Oct 17 '13 at 18:47
  • Even though I was not aware of what wax eagle said in his answer, I didn't edit the title because I feel it, and the correlated question, disgusting. I think that, now that the question is closed, high-rep users should quickly delete it. Oct 17 '13 at 20:51
  • @ElberichSchneider Why is the question disgusting? Though we are ill equipped to answer it on this site, would you posit that it does not deserve an answer anywhere? As a medium rep user I would not vote to delete it because it is a duplicate of a legitimate question.

    @pterandon It's okay to just let it go. It will be off the home page in only a day or two more. Then I bet you will never see it again.

  • @fred., because it is against human nature and a capital sin. Oct 18 '13 at 18:15
  • @ElberichSchneider All right, convince me.

  • @fredsbend, I would really like to convince you, but I have no command of the English language to explain my though in reference to a so sensible subject. Thank you for your invitation, I appreciated a lot :) Oct 18 '13 at 19:51
  • @Elberich You sound like your English is just fine. It would be good practice.

    Look, we're mostly all adults here, lets act like it. There's no reason to snicker like a 12 year old when the topic of sex comes up. We have a history of dealing with sticky topics related to sex with maturity. Let's keep it up. Sex (and other activities related to it) aren't disgusting, they're something that was created by God for us to enjoy. And keep in mind that we're from varying backgrounds, because you find something disgusting (or don't) doesn't mean someone else does (or doesn't). Even wrt what is and is not sin (which is why is x a sin is a banned topic in the general).

Two times we don't want folks editing

  • Very old, lousy closed questions. If you feel something needs cleanup, flag it and we'll probably just delete it.

  • Spam/Offensive questions that need spam/offensive flags cast on them. The reason behind this is that editing will actually clear the spam/offensive flag.

If something doesn't meet one of these two criteria, please edit. If it's on the homepage and needs fixing, please edit it.
