Look at this suggested Edit. In this the anonymous user has added a line

please i want to do project that going to done on reporting system so help me

and also ruined the formatting of the code. Still it was approved by the community. What should be done in the cases like this?

EDIT:As suggested I have rolled back the changes, but shouldn't there be some kind of a flag or something to flag those approvers(who I think approved the post even without reading the edit).?

If you have over 2,000 reputation just roll it back.

If you have less then 2,000 reputation flag it for moderator attention so they can roll it back.

    Even if you have the ability to roll the edit back, I'd still recommend flagging this, because we may want to have a conversation with the reviewers involved. Flags like this have also helped us see connections between reviewers and suggesters on at least one occasion. Nov 17, 2012 at 13:37
