    Editing post seems permitted if system clock is set back

    I've been doing some triple-boot (Hackintosh macOS - Linux - Windows) recently, and the time between the three is out of sync (the universal/local BIOS time issue in Windows) and I've noticed something weird:

    I was replying to somebody's comment on a thread, and I've noticed that all the posts say "Just posted" as well as the stories on the main page. The Edit (X mins) buttons also had x=186 mins (in this case) (the clock was set back three hours as I live in a GMT+3 time zone).

    Does it seem odd that time is measured on the user's side, not the server's side?

      ... It's ever since they switched to that annoying javascript bling that manipulates the date locally.

    I highly suspect it is enforced on the server-side - if you find otherwise, let us know.
