But don’t worry, Robocop won’t use guns. We are going to have him use explosives!

One of the many things I find disturbing about this ad is the blanket assumptions that celebrities are above the law. “But I’m Celine Dion!” So???

Oops, wrong thread, my bad. I wonder why you can’t edit or delete any of your comments on here? Weird.

You can edit, you just have to hover over the outer, bottom edge of your comment until the settings cogwheel appears. Sometimes my edit function times out immediately, sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve deleted by erasing the entire comment and replacing with a single period or whatever character. It still shows I commented, but my erroneous comment is gone.

Thank so much ~ that’s really helpful! It looks like that feature is only available on desktop view; I don’t seem to have access via phone. Still, great to know. 🙂
