Host a group on Skype, and you are allowed to modify everyone's texts as much as you want (right-click and select "modify message"). I am wondering what exactly is the purpose of allowing this. This can turn pretty unpleasant depending on who is hosting and what he wants you to type.
Hi, OaK66, and welcome to the Community,
Could we look at this from a different perspective? I view the Creator's (or Chat Group's Owner) role as that of a moderator; whoever started the chat group ought to and deserves to have the authority to edit and even to delete posts that are not on-topic or that do not contribute toward the purpose of the chat group.
Another point to ponder: if the chat group became unruly and out of control, shouldn't the the Creator (or Owner) have the discretion to simply close the chat group if they chose to do so?
Of course, as you observe, there will always be those who take advantage of the privileges afforded to them. Whether an edited post is edited for the common good or censored depends upon the vantage point one is viewing the editing from.
Just in case you have not seen this FAQ article ...

Thank you for your answer. I do understand that "creator" should have some privileges in specific situations, but modifiying someone else's texts and lure others into believing he wrote something he never did goes way beyond the limits of what I find acceptable.
