As an administrator, is there a way to remove the text that appears when you edit a post like below? If i make a post and quicily see that i made a mistake in it such as a typo, im going to correct it but dont want everyone else to know how big of a dumb ass i am or that my post was corrected.

That is generated as part of the template files. Disabling it for all users is easy. Just wrap that section in an HTML comment. Doing it that way instead of deleting would let the information still be available by viewing the source if you wanted it.

Disabling it for specific users or posts is much harder. You'd have to figure out how to put the correct logic into the Template to show or hide this info using Freemarker script or modify the code to add a special template var.
