Thought i'd give you a heads up that somehow my account seems to have administrator privileges to edit all thread titles.
I could now go through all the threads and change the title to literally whatever i like.
I've tested by editing a few and reverting them back immediately.

For example
http://www.thelocal.se/discuss/index.php?showtopic=87617
Used to be called "Gang of Armed robbers - send teens to hospital."

I've renamed it to "Group of Armed robbers - send teens to hospital"

Older posts (2 yrs+) seem to be unable to be edited. Presumably archived.

Everyone has this capability, been like that for years! =) They should probably do something about it though.

Seriously?
It's totally possible i never saw it before but i'm stunned i don't see more posts that have been edited for shits and giggles especially with the toxicity that exists on TL and t'internet in general.
