What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

For example, this question was edited to include the following (edit no longer visible unless you go into the edit history):

Edit by Enes Unal : No need to downvote this question, think about it and you will find why He asks this..

To me, this edit seems inappropriate. It was edited by a user without editing privileges, and the OP accepted the edit.

However, since I also don't have editing privileges, my deletion of the edit would have to be peer-reviewed and would likely be denied by the OP. So how should I handle this?

That edit should've been a comment. –  Mysticial Jul 26 '12 at 1:29
    
It was a funny race condition too (rejected and accepted at the same exact time: stackoverflow.com/suggested-edits/329689) –  jmfsg Jul 26 '12 at 1:38
    
It's lucky that the edit is on an active question - otherwise, it would have gone unnoticed. –  nhahtdh Jul 26 '12 at 1:44

That is indeed an inappropriate use of the edit feature. In fact, it's a textbook example of one of the reject reasons.

You should roll back the edit or, at least, remove it.

If the OP rejects your edit, flag it for a Moderator's attention. Use the "other" option and explain why it's flagged.
