great question, I've brought this up in the past. Even worse, is the fact that users can hide their own questions! This can really screw up a site. This is one of the features in Q2A that should be fixed, even if the developer has some reason for allowing editing of questions and hiding of questions. In my opinion, essentially, only Admins or some other higher level should be allowed to edit and hide questions. Regular users should not be allowed to do any of this, though perhaps they should be provided a 15 minute window to edit their own question after it's been posted.
