@AdamMosheh your edits are pushing out new posts, and not allowing them to be seen. Do you think you could slow down and do them over time? – Daniel Aug 6 '12 at 16:45

See this discussion by Rabbi Dovid Ostroff. The drawer is a basis for that which is mutar and assur, so it depends which is more important, which is defined by Rav Moshe Feinstein based on his present needs and by Rav Shlomo Zalman Aurbach as a more absolute level of importance.
