I have recently reviewed several subsequent edits for the same person placing an "ios" tag on multiple iDevice questions. I saw at least 5 before I decided to stop reviewing and flagging him at "too minor", and simply ask here.

I suspect he's likely just editing on auto-pilot for the badge. Do they get flagged as poor editors after some time, or is this legit behavior and should nothing be done about him (and similar)?

    Well if he's really badge hunting, he will be very disappointed since tag-only edits don't count towards the editing badges anyways. But there's also the +2 reputation reward.

If enough edits get rejected they could get edit banned for a week.

Source: Why is the edit button disabled?

  • Do those who are edit-banned get reviewed by the moderators, or only in special circumstances? If it happens more than once, are they flagged for review?
