Why can any user edit any other user’s question or answer?
Given how reputation privileges are gradually earned, how is a user with 1-rep enabled to suggest edits?
This user, now with a reputation of 3 for having their edit approved, suggested an edit as their very first interaction with the site. With no questions or answers, I do have appreciation for a user who joins to contribute through community moderation.
I disagreed with their edit, as the answer author indicated they felt the documentation was wrong. Instead of maintaining this attitude, it was edited to cite documentation.
What strikes me as wrong about this is that the user doesn't even have enough reputation to comment; yet, they can change a post. They could not comment for followup or discussion.
It takes 10-reputation to remove new user restrictions, such as adding an image to a post.
Many people cite an issue with the new review system is high rep users approving poor edits; however, those edits are being seeded by lower rep users who cannot yet edit questions and answers.
One thing I look for when reviewing is the reputation of the suggested edit and original author. Like, I'd feel out of place to edit Jon Skeet's answers. Certainly I'm not stating reputation makes a user impervious to edits, nor that users of lesser reputation should be unable to edit a higher reputation edit. I guess it's a respect for what you feel should be left unchanged.
