In the case of objectionable questions, answers, and comments, I'd flag the behavior, as recommended here: How can I report a specific bad user? However, there is no way to flag edits. So how can I report abuse of the edit privilege?

I ask because I recently encountered a user who made many edits not in accordance with the guidelines for the edit privilege.

    just flag the post that has been abused by edit (using "Other" kind of flag) and explain the issue in the flag message

  1. If the user really damaged the post, and if you have the edit privilege, then first rollback the question/answer to undo the damage.
  2. Flag the post with a custom moderator flag like this:

    User [user name or user id here] has damaged the post with his edit, and he has done more edits like this.
