Besides we already know the truth of the matter. Small and independent developers are hard pressed to be able to survive on anything the store brings in. Discovery is wonky as hell, you may get kicked out for squinting at the sun wrong, or Apple may decide your app should now be part of their core functionality. In any of those cases, I wouldn't quit your day job even if you do get an app in the store.
I agree. But an independent, talented developer has the means to develop a hit application and be reasonably compensated.
When is gmail going to get an edit function? Maybe twitter actually needs draft tweets? Seems better than allowing to change the history of a conversation, no?
Seriously, if there's no edit but people are still clamouring for it, maybe a bit of education could go a long way helping them understand the difference between a blog and twitter. Oh, and reviewing up to 140 chars doesn't take that much effort.
Sometimes, just sometimes, I'd like to delete all my accounts everywhere and just leave this online world... most of the time, I then realize that it's just an image of the real world and that fleeing it won't help the slightest.

If you find a decent slashdot alternative, I'm listening,
