Any reason why this wasn't just built into it from the start?

Yes, its doesnt play well across multiple timezones.

Thats fine in a mod, but not acceptable in the core product.

Why would I do that ? It would be pointless duplication of core functionality.

Great mod man, seriously should be in Core.

Request though, Anyway to have the customer separator to be used and just use a variable like %time or something? I also don't like that it updates the time of the original post either.

When I first noticed the double post feature, I always thought it should have included a time stamp, but with relative time because of the timezone issue.

So you'd have your first post. And then the separator to your followup would say something like

---- 30 minutes later ----

or

---- after 2.5 hours ----

something like that. See what I mean? Timezone agnostic because it's all relative.
