On this question, the original question read:
Does css used other than browser environment?
Pretty bad, and in need of an edit. So it was edited by someone else to read:
Is CSS ever used outside the environment of web browsers? Does it have any applications outside of the web?
Fair enough. Makes sense to improve it like so.
Then finally, it was edited to read by a third person:
Just curious - apart from its ubiquitous use in specifying the presentation of HTML in modern web browsers, do any programs or standards utilize CSS?
Despite having the same meaning, this just sounds like putting words into the asker's mouth, and could also confuse some non-native speakers.
I don't have edit privileges on any site, so I'm particularly interested on hearing the opinions of those who do have them. I personally feel that the third edit was going to far, considering it was fine in the second version. Would others consider it going too far/is it too far?
Another example (this is the one that made me think about asking the question but I had an answer in, so I tried to find another one for the main example): This question was edited by someone first to tidy up the code (fine), but then edited again by someone else to make some sort of ascii representation of the table at the top (which didn't help understanding, and just added visual clutter to the question IMO).
