I reviewed this suggest edit by an anonymous user, it looks strange for me, is this normal ? for me it looks like hack, because I can not able to see the user who suggested that edit see the screenshot. Instead it simply shows anonymous user and also he introduce spam like URL.

  • Spammers will try all sorts of things to get their spam out there. I've even seen spam in tag wikis before.

    Nothing strange. This happens everyday. That's why we have a rejection reason for that which you used. Oct 29 '13 at 10:00

Anonymous users are permitted to make suggested edits. Because we have good users standing at the gates preventing the bad edits getting through the spammers largely give up and we are not overwhelmed by these edit suggestions.

    Worth to mention, accidents do happen - clever spammers can trick even the best of us. So it's important to keep an open eye even on approved edits and catch those. Oct 29 '13 at 12:18
