Spelling and grammatical errors along with structural changes occur throughout all of these posts. Shouldn't the person who makes the post have the opportunity to edit them?

This has been mentioned before. It certainly would be reasonable, but for now, a limitation of the platform I suppose. I'll bet we will see some further improvements in the coming [x] time frame, but for now, a second or third post to correct mistakes will have to do.

This is one definite improvement which is required. As it is frustrating if you make a mistake and realize it after you have posted.

I'm not sure. However, I have noticed this as a recurring trend on professional sites lately (Scrum.org and LinkedIn do the same thing). The ability to edit our content after posting is not some new functionality; message boards and online forums have implemented this for well over a decade now.

I'd like to think there's a reason, but I can't seem to figure out what it is.

Kiron, I am referring to the ability to edit our posts/comments in the articles and blogs as non-authors, the same way we can in discussion posts.

The ability to edit our comments on blogs/articles is way overdue already.

Interesting - perhaps they are trying to discourage folks from "shooting from the hip"?
