How can you know how many words it contained before it was edited
I don't know but I have seen what Johnny has said was his original text. I put it through word count and it had 102 words. The edit is basically the copy and pasted text modified in such a way that more detail is actually included from the original source, so even though his opinion is taken out of it [purposely or possibly by mistake, I don't know], overall it actually has more words that the original. If you put the edited text through a word count you will notice it has 107 words.
I am happy to post the original text here if you want to see it for yourself, but I don't want it to get Johnny in any more trouble. Like I said, I don't know for sure if it is the original text, but it's hard to figure out a reason why Johnny would lie about it. If he did have vulgarity in there and it was taken out, but everything else left in, I don't think he would be bothered. His anger is that he added his opinion and that appears to have been deleted and then the whole thread subsequently closed.
