Remove trivial edit restriction

It seems that Stack Overflow explicitly provides a possibility to edit responses, and even suggests "spelling" in edit comment.

Yet Stack Overflow doesn't allow edits shorter than 6 characters.

So if someone's response reads e.g. "sunchronized" or "amx value," it means I cannot correct correct that response spelling!

P.S. I understand it's yet another of these "6-non-whitespace" issues, but please fix it already!

    I don't think SO suggests spelling corrections; your browser may though. – Martijn Pieters Jun 12 '12 at 10:55
  • indeed a duplicate. please make stack more like wiki -- it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission! – Dima Tisnek Jun 12 '12 at 10:58
  • @MartijnPieters: Yes, SO suggests spelling corrections: "How to Edit ► fix grammatical or spelling errors ► correct minor mistakes". But then when you try to do it, it rejects your edit. Nice, huh? – endolith Nov 21 '12 at 17:44
