I've just noticed a few users with edit permissions basically scan through entire questions and answers, post by post, changing the smallest issues. i.e. modifying 'i' with 'I', re-spacing words, or replacing things with arguably more correct but indubitably more boring language.
Now I can fully understand the need for editing posts when it is difficult to read or understand, to remove/add tags, or if there is a blatant spelling mistake. However, removing bolding or italics from words, replacing 'color' with 'color', or even just changing the user's spacing is taking things towards more of an OCD level, rather than being of any use.
- Is this expected of users with edit permissions?
- If my posts are edited in such a way do I have a say in what happens to the content?
- I have read in other posts (dated back to 2009/2010) that the original user isn't notified when an edit is made to their post, is this still the case?
Basically I much prefer the use of language to evolve, as long as it is clear. Sometimes the right choice of a wrong word or style can expositionally refine your meaning.
As much as I have taken to StackOverflow over the last few months, I found this behaviour rather unsettling.
