I'm reporting the following bug per Shog9's requestShog9's request.

Consider the following scenario:

  1. You edit any post on a SE site where you have edit privileges.

  2. In a second edit within the grace period of the first, you revert all changes you made (character by character, not a rollback) .

The post is now the same as it was before, but neither edit appears in the revision history. It looks like the post has never been changed.

Possible implications:

  • If somebody vandalizes the post and it gets severely downvoted before the edit gets undone and nobody rolls the edit back, there's no history of what happened.

  • This allows 2k users to undo or reverse up- and downvotes in a concealed manner.
