Strange.. The other stuff its rejected seems OK as well. Bot on the loose? –  Manishearth May 7 '12 at 18:29
    
When a reviewer clicks Improve instead of Accept or Reject, and then unchecks the "Suggested edit was helpful" box before finishing the edit, the suggestion will show up as rejected by Community rather than the user who ended up making the edit. (Partial dupe of the FAQ on suggested edits.) –  Pops May 7 '12 at 18:31
    
@Pop: but in that case, the reviewer should appear in the edit history, should e not? –  Josh Caswell May 7 '12 at 18:32
    
Yes indeed, @JacquesCousteau. I went to check out the revision history right after posting my comment, and now I'm stumped. Perhaps there was a race condition of some kind with two suggested edits? That's pretty far out though, there's probably a more reasonable explanation. –  Pops May 7 '12 at 18:34
    
@Pop: Clashing suggestions is the only thing I can think of. Similar things have happened before. –  Josh Caswell May 7 '12 at 18:35

As Tim Stone pointed out in chat, you suggested your edit about two minutes after the initial post was made. It's possible that the OP "ninja-edited" within his five minute grace period and overrode your suggestion.
