This suggested edit: https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2017549 was rejected as spam. It doesn't make any sense to me. I added a useful caveat regarding delimiters rather than using '@' sign ( as opposed to forking a new unneeded answer ), in the process avoiding a duplicate answer I was prepared to make.
Additionally I added a link to http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Sed.html a very solid SED guide I've been using since 2002; and it has been posted here many times before.
What did I do wrong here? I thought the purpose of this is to encourage collaboration and improvement of a good answer. (Note that I UPVOTED the answer in question and removed a comment resulting from confusion prior) Instead it seems the MO is race to put out a crappy answer, update it several times and hope that someone picks your answer first, rather than having a single complete GOOD answer.
I'm trying to be more active to build up my reputation, but it's getting frustrating when your contributions are constantly rejected with little merit, or when the reviewers claim them your edits as their own by changing one word during their review https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2002287 which is funnier since several of my shorter edits have been thrown away for less when they removed non-sense. https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2017267. Heck this was more substantial fixing a title and correcting grammer and was rejected https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/1980548
And one of my favorites, is this one, where apparently pointing out that an accepted answer doesn't actually solve the question asked is not acceptable. I added this because I TRIED to use it and discovered it's not suitable for automation. It's a very useful start, but it doesn't actually answer the question: https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/1726643
Hoping someone can help shine some light on any of these. Thanks
