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

A user, probably to be helpful, tried to add an answer to a closed question by editing it.

I rejected the edit, without analyzing the question nor the answer, on the principle that an answer isn't welcome on a closed question.

Was I right, or was I just acting like some kind of rigid ayatollah ?

Yes, you were. Editing an answer directly into the body of the question is never acceptable.
