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

Community♦ user edit: How does it know what to edit?

Now I have truly seen everything. The community user does a lot of things, but editing answers to add information? Now that is truly bizarre.

What am I talking about? Have a look at the revisions to this question. Yeah, that's right - the community user suggested an edit that adds to the answer.

What is going on? Do we need to fear the new intelligent bots? Should we run for cover... or should we try to get rid of it?

A plausible explanation of what happened here would be great if nobody can think of a good defense strategy.

Aw... so much for the conspiracy theories. Thanks for being so quick to point this out. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Aug 29 '11 at 19:33
Its too bad that that this doesn't work on – Some Helpful Commenter Aug 29 '11 at 19:35
@George: I'm disappointed in you. A good conspiracy theorist doesn't let little things like "facts" get in the way. – gnostradamus Aug 29 '11 at 19:40
