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

I think it would be useful to have a reject reason "This should be a comment".

Whenever I see (minor) edits to code or some edit that challenges the opinion in the original post I select "other" and write "This should be a comment".

My reasoning behind is to reject the edit but to give the editor a hint what he should have done.

Recent example:


if aline[0] in m.keys(): 


if aline[0] in m

A comment would have been a better option compared to a straight edit.

At least on ELU we have "invalid edit" which includes "this is an attempt to reply to this post" – simchona Jul 15 '12 at 15:49

This already does exist:

invalid edit
This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post.

you're right :) somehow I always just read it as : this edit is incorrect (i.e. the content is invalid or false). – örs Jul 15 '12 at 16:58
