The many discussions we had about this were probably before your time here. There are many kinds of editing ranging from a simple cut to completely doctoring one's performance. Most people I think will agree that a couple of simple cuts do not compromise a recording in any way, and that heavily doctoring one's performance is wrong. Somewhere in between lies "the line". But you just try and find it. As with all things, there is no clear line between right and wrong.
