A bitch edit (also a verb, "to bitch edit") is a dastardly editing of another person's post, usually for purposes of lulz. Aside from moderator edits of members' posts, bitch edits originally took the form of deliberate misquotings of others. But with the rise of the Estate in 2006 (and the attending mod powers given to each member), bitch editing advanced to an art form. This resulted in more lulz, but also more angst, as actual posts were altered. Bitch editing has fallen into decline since the demise of the Estate and INH.
