Frequently I see people with enough reputation to edit complain about formatting issues instead of taking matters into their own hands to edit and improve questions. I can understand why this might be the case if the OP has enough rep that they should know how to use the system better, but often it's on questions from users with 1 rep (brand new accounts). What can we do to encourage more civil (frankly, many of the comments are downright rude) and helpful behavior by people who can edit posts?
FWIW, I lost some flagging mojo by flagging what I thought to be rude comments respecting the quality of a new user's post, so I'm not sure that flagging is the answer unless the mods are on board.
- PHP do you see anything wrong with this code?
- How can I refresh my local database from a web service when an item isn't found?
Note: I'm not holding this up as a good question; it's a lousy one. But there is an opportunity to work with the user to improve it rather than simply blast away at the poor quality.
