Introduction

I was tempted to make an historic novel of this question, but decided against it, since someone might not understand the subtle quality of the novel I was about to write.

History

I was checking the for some civic duty, more specifically Question without Answers section. I looked for question that needed some kind of action (comment asking for clarification, edits, tagging, voting, flagging, etc.), and stumbled upon this questionthis question. It was a good question (but with lack of formatting) and was edited previously, but what struck me more was the fact that it has an answer.

Decision making

I analyzed the question deeply, read the comments and I decided that I could take 3 actions:

  1. Comment again and hope OP takes action.
  2. Edit the question and add an answer as community wiki.
  3. Flag for moderation.

I rationalized that (1) will not achieve anything since comments already tried 3 times to make OP pay attention (in 2009, 2012 and 2013) and make a proper answer. (3) Was a bit too much, since the problem was actually simple and no something that could trigger alien invasion. So, I did (2), based in a previous question about "Is OK to flag comments as answers" in Meta U&L.

Taking action

So, created the answer as Community wiki (Simonatmso.net raised concerns about what I was trying to do but even so failed to review the edit), and edited the questionedited the question to delete the answer embedded to the question and did some light grammar check. But 3 out 4 seemed that didn't noticed what was going on (lack of coffee? too many reviews at the same time?) and rejected the edit with "This edit changes too much in the original post; the original meaning or intent of the post would be lost". I couldn't catch how the OP change the meaning if the changes were introduced by other editother edit and I was just giving closure to the question.

As you all can notice (or I hope so), it was too odd that 3 different persons, in the same situation, did the same action even when they were in wrong (I attribute this to the lack of coffee). So, please offer more coffee to reviewers, or they are given enough so need something even more powerful (energy drinks?).

If I was in wrong, I do apologize for making you all waste your time reading my rant, but any answer (guidance) is always welcomed.
