Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The drag-to-resize feature (present on the "review" page and when editing answers) has no limits— it can be used to expand that post container infinitely.

I think it would be useful to restrict the distance which the post can be expanded to the actual end of the post.

Here's an example where the post was expanded further than its length:

I think it already snaps to the end of the post—if that's possible, shouldn't this be?

Stop dragging it past the end of the post. Problem solved. – Kevin Dec 14 '11 at 2:44
@Kevin: Wow, just wow! I never thought of that! – Mystery Dec 14 '11 at 3:09
My point is, there is no harm in keeping it the way it is, so why take it out? Other than to satisfy your personal preferences, that is. – Kevin Dec 14 '11 at 3:20
@Kevin: because when the view stops expanding while I'm dragging, then I know there's no more to the post. If it keeps moving, I am forced to wonder whether there's just a few blank lines with more content below. – Josh Caswell Dec 14 '11 at 3:32
@Kevin: We won't be "taking out" anything, just adding an extra feature that would prevent the kind of confusion that Problem mentioned. – Mystery Dec 14 '11 at 7:39
