#7178: Enforce edit logging when modifying other users posts

 Currently, when a post is edited, there is a checkbox toggle to allow the
 user to decide if they wish to log the edit or not, alongside an optional
 reason field. If no reason is supplied, but the box is ticked, there is
 still a timestamp and a mention of who edited the post.

 To ensure accountability, let's look at removing the optional checkbox,
 always requiring the editing of a post to be logged (we can still keep the
 reason optional, if there's an obvious reason for the edit).

 The exception to this would be when editing your own content. When doing
 so, the option to not log it should still be there, this would be directly
 related to acting on content generated by other users.
