Nope, just says Quote, Multi-Quote, and Quick Reply buttons. In another thread it has the Edit button as well.

I found it interesting that the main 4 Japanese brands were almost identical in reliability reviews.

You are right. And I'll keep pointing out the click bait.

As someone in IT, I can tell that you don't know what you're talking about if you think running your own servers (note: plural) is anywhere near "free". This isn't some random spare old machine someone threw Apache on and stuck in a closet. You have the cost of the servers, replacement servers for when they reach end of life, maintenance contracts, replacement parts when things like hard drives fail, SAN storage and networking gear, and license costs (just to name a few), none of which are remotely cheap let alone "free".

Considering that appears to be their profit model, what's your point? That they're a successful business?

Not to mention web developers as each has their own identity, moderators (I'm assuming they pay at least some of the people moderating the forums), content creators if they're paying to create any original content...

You're making out like they get tons of money for doing absolutely nothing. The truth is that they do offer a service, one which you don't have to pay anything at all for, just give your eyes to advertising once in a while (and not even that if you use an ad blocker).

I forgot to mention people to maintain the servers, storage, network equipment, etc., and it's also not giving me an edit option.
