I just noticed this old question received a recent edit. When I examined the edit I noticed that it greatly altered the meaning and context of the question, perhaps to better fit the editor's own answer. I wanted to roll it back but there is no rollback option. Has something changed or is it something to do with that particular question?
It seemed to roll back fine for me...
I don't do a lot of editing and I don't think I've ever rolled back an edit until just now, but it looks like the way it works is that earlier versions of the post have a "rollback" link that will revert the post to that version.
I'm going to leave it rolled back for now, but the guy who did the editing has updated this earlier question which has lots of discussion about that SSL/TLS question.
I'm the author that edit, and re-edited back to something closer to what it was originally.
Of course, you can say the edit I made was for my answer to fit better the question, but then again, the question I answered was quite clearly "What's the difference between SSL and TLS?" (check the history).
Saying that I edited it back to fit my answer is rather unfair.
As for the edit itself, I was merely correcting the eternal SSL v.s. TLS misconception in "I know that TLS is essentially a newer version of SSL, and that it generally supports transitioning a connection from unsecured to secured (commonly through a STARTTLS command).".
This more or less implies that SSL did not support this sort of transitioning, which isn't true. Both protocols equally support transitioning from unsecured to secured, but how this is done depends entirely on the application protocol.
I also admit this is a broad question, but since a number of IT professionals don't understand the difference, I'd argue it has its place here.
