Certain forms of

actual html code cannot be used, (which generally would not be in any typical copy/pasted article excerpt), but other than that, no, you can revise a post as many times as you need to, or copy paste whatever excerpt you choose to.

Usually the only time a mod would shorten your post, would be if it included the full text of some article from another website. That would be a potential copyright infringement issue, which it doesn't appear you did, and it would show to me if that happened and a mod shortened it. So, with that, it appears we have a mystery. lol
