It has happened a few times that I asked a question and some individual who admits to not understand my question begins editing it in random ways, which change the intent of my question. Is there a way to dissuade him from continuing to do this? If not, would it be possible to implement some form of up/down voting for edits to a question owned by someone else?
- If someone edits my question and I say nothing, nothing happens.
- If someone edits my question and I roll it back, they lose 1 rep for each time I roll it back (so they lose a total of 3 rep if they edit twice and I roll it back twice).
- Gain 1 rep for every edit that I endorse.
It's a serious problem if someone takes it upon themselves to understand my question by continuously editing it, because I do not get correct answers (because the people answering don't see the correct question or the wrong parts being emphasized). Also, it's a form of trolling that is unpunished by SO so far.
I cannot be in front of my computer to roll back 4 different edits, especially when it seems that only one person does not understand the original question.
Specific example of what I'm talking about:
I asked a question on Superuser about whether or not a certain program existed, and on the off-chance that it didn't, would someone be willing to refer me to some code. The editor took it upon himself to invert my priorities multiple times, getting hung up on the fact that I was not entirely averse to working with code. #127348
