This question already has an answer here:
Thanks for reading this question, it's something that has been bothering me for some time.
It often happens that people write things such as "thanks in advance", "I've been trying to fix this problem for days", "I'll be very grateful if you can help me". These things I agree don't really add anything to the question but I usually reject edits that only remove these "human" things.
While reviewing, one edit that removed all signs of humanity in a question was accepted by 4 people and reject by one. The editor's comment was something like "removing text that goes against how to ask a question on SO". So I wonder why? The FAQ on how to ask a question doesn't mention anything about greetings, thanks, and those things that make a post seem human.
I kind of feel bad every time I see a dry question that is just a task to execute, and prefer questions obviously asked by a person. Then I discover that the initial question was nicely asked and the person was asking quite politely, but someone came by and removed all humanity from the question.
These words of politeness that are removed certainly don't add anything concrete to the question, but it is a hell of a lot more pleasant to read a question that has some color than it is to read a question that is purely straight to the point.
What really bothers me with this is that in some of the edits people are removing these parts but aren't fixing more obvious grammar error or code formatting.
I appreciate your time and consideration, thank you again!
