I've noticed that there is the 5 minute grace period where edits are not visible, Can Moderators See Edits Made to Answers Within 5 Minutes?.
The problem is, if I were to edit some one's post within that 5 minutes, the edit remains. I was not aware of this until now.
The issue was, someone has pushed up some login information, including user name and password.
When this happens what do we do?
- Wait 5 minutes at which point it's well and truely visible (yes, it was their fault for posting it, but mistakes happen) but then edit it as it's going to be visible any way
- Leave comments to request they remove it (we should do this)
- Edit it immediately to remove it, but know it will be persisted in the history
