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

enter image description here There's two suggested edits here.. and the difference is obvious - there is no edit. While it was rejected, i see a comment but no actual edit. Is this an odd glitch, or something else?

EDIT: Apparently @satya found that even regular users can do it.So now its not 'how' its 'why'

Creative way to comment on a question, though. – Martijn Pieters Jul 2 '12 at 10:15
It's not restricted to anon.. even regular users can do it. Here's an example: (FOR SCIENCE, of course!) – Sathya Jul 2 '12 at 10:27
This was reported quite some time ago, but I can't find the earlier question... – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jul 2 '12 at 10:51
I think the length check or quality filter check are not active on all sites, maybe there are no filters on Super User? – Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 11:00
@Bolt you probably mean this? – Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 11:10
@ShaWizDowArd: Nope, that's a revision, not an edit suggestion. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jul 2 '12 at 11:14
@Sathya was able to suggest on the same question you edited by adding blank spaces   - maybe that's the case? (please reject :)) – Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 11:24
@ShaWizDowArd #no. – Sathya Jul 2 '12 at 11:31

We've identified the bug and will fix it tomorrow, hopefully. It has to do with the site being extra helpful and stripping spaces from a title's ending punctuation, e.g. "How can I do this ?" – Jarrod Dixon Jul 5 '12 at 5:52
@Gilles your example was perfect, note how the main question page doesn't have the space, but the raw revision does. – Jarrod Dixon Jul 5 '12 at 5:59
@jarrod did this get fixed..? – Jeff Atwood Dec 1 '12 at 10:44
Doesn't look like this is possible any longer. – Adam Lear May 6 '14 at 22:25
@Anna but did Jarrod fix the bug, or is the code still stripping away such spaces? – Shadow Wizard May 6 '14 at 22:34
@ShadowWizard Jarrod sez it should be fixed, and I can't seem to repro it here. – Adam Lear May 6 '14 at 22:35
