There are many options here:

  1. You are not logged on and the post is 10 minutes old or less
  2. There is already a pending edit on this post
  3. The queue is full, only happens rarely on new SE sites with no moderators
  4. You have been banned for a week cause you submitted many rejected edits

Options 2, 3 and 4 only apply if you have less than 2,000 reputation.

And indeed: there was a pending edit. – Arjan Mar 24 '11 at 23:23
Right, thanks ! – M'vy Mar 25 '11 at 0:16
5. It's a site where low rep users can't edit posts. That seems to the case with several metas. – CodesInChaos Mar 11 '12 at 20:39
