I recently learned that it is possible for a moderator to edit somebody else's posts, which is not something that I think should happen for any reason. For the record, Orrdos altered the spelling of a poll choice in the cartoon character thread and also added his thread to the official thread list. Neither are an abuse of the power. In the case of an official thread that is there for the community (as in the latter case), it actually doesn't matter, but I really don't think that mod's should be altering spelling or content of ordinary posts that represent the person who posted it. If I mis-spelt a word, and a mod corrected it, I'd feel like the post was no longer my own. Call me weird, but I would. If a mis-spelling irks someone enough, then they can simply ask for me to edit it. I would prefer that this power is removed, or if it can't be without affecting the ability to delete spam posts, then it should be part of the moderator's code that it shouldn't be used. It says somewhere that a post represents the posters opinion and not that of the board's owners (as is only sensible), an edited post means that is also represents the editor's opinon.
