Allow under 6 character changes if they are inside code tags
Trivial edits are discouraged - good. However I edited a post that was otherwise a good question, except the code wasn't offset, and this greatly slowed down my ability to read and process the question. When I found the prototype of the function he was talking about I indented it and felt the readability was much improved, however I had to change 6 non-whitespace characters. As a result I fixed some capitalization errors - 6 characters of them. This is ironic and actually creates a perverse incentive.
Anyway - the 'trivial' edit detector should not consider white space that is offsetting for code to be a trivial edit.
Tagged as "bug" because improperly turning the business requirement into a coding specification is as bad as a coding error.
