This user has made multiple edits recently where he adds
Thanks in advance to the end.
I know this is wrong to do because it puts words in the user's mouth and we are not supposed to say "thanks" or make a signature.
The issue is that the edits are substantial, minus the ending, so most of the edits are being approved. If they are not improved to remove the line during review, I will go back and remove it myself.
I know this is a pattern, and it will continue until the user gets the message that it won't be allowed.
I want to take action to make this stop, or know of a good way to inform the user of this.
My first thought is to flag for moderator attention, but as far as I know, you can't flag a user or a suggested edit, and flagging a question sounds like you are flagging the content of the question.
I have added a message in one of my rejects to say "don't do this", but who knows if it will reach him. I could make a @reply on one of his edited post, but from what I can see, he has not engaged in any and that would be adding clutter in the comments.
So, what should we do?
(thanks in advance)
