What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

For one thing, the system would not be spammed by edits,, Also the last edited date does not change if the edit was less than a two or three minutes after the post. I don't think robots are as much of a concern here. It would be more a concern on edits that pull the post to the top by updating the last edit time and of course for creating new posts.
