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: http://stackoverflow.com/suggested-edits/317430


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
