I just edited someone's post so that it would be more readable. Basically, I just added some line breaks and spaces into their sql code so that it now takes a reader about 5 seconds to comprehend what the query is doing instead of 50.
It was rejected on the basis that the edit was too minor. I respect that decision in that if there's a rule that minor edits should be rejected then they were following that rule. I am just curious to know why that is a hard rule. Is it just to prevent having too many edits?
