Seen on {{Message Board}}s and blogs and the like, the Ninja Editor is the type of person who makes a post, then almost immediately goes back to and then edits it quickly and without comment -- like a {{ninja}}.

A somewhat related phenomenon is the '''''Ninja Post''''', where during the time an entirely new message is being written or uploaded, one or more other corespondents will submit messages into the conversation where the aforementioned one was intended to go. In this case, specific references to location or primacy (eg.: “Like the last post says…”, “I'm surprised nobody's mentioned…”) will be rendered confusing or misleading. This is one of the disadvantages of having a slower internet connection.

In the case of a total-post change, it may be deliberate [[{{Troll}} trolling]] in order to bring about maximum confusion, or may be a newbie recanting after inadvertently running afoul of InternetBackdraft, in which case it may be extremely difficult for late-comers to the thread in question to figure out what exactly went the hell on in the first place. A more malicious application might be to ask a question, then once a few replies have been posted, edit the original post so that the answers now appear to be incriminating (ie- getting anyone to respond with a number under 13, then changing the question to "How old are you", resulting in an immediate ban under minimum age rules. This is why [[Website/GameFAQs GameFAQs]] didn't allow editing for a long time, and while it is now allowed the above actions will get you banned.)

This can get really, ''really'' annoying in certain communities (especially Livejournal) where you can now edit comments, as most people have settings that email the comments to them, so in the space of a few minutes you can have half a dozen of practically the same comment clogging up your inbox.
