If Joe edits out Alex's asshole, Alex will have a REAL PROBLEM. (Yes, I saw the quotation marks.) And if Joe ever edits one of my posts without mentioning that he's done so, I'll remind him gently that I once had such privileges in a non-Internet discussion forum, and I noted in the forum whenever I had deleted anything. I think that would be good practice here too.

Some discussion of the Churchill story appears in the alt.english.usage FAQ. Apparently no one knows Churchill's exact words--a fact that will surprise no reader of this forum. Shortly after it there's the "Where's the library at" joke.
