The new user named shumanth is suggesting wrong edits (deleting the entire part of the answer) for this particular answer and in comments he is adding suggested by moderator.

And this is the history of his suggestion

I have rejected it and fellow Users too have rejected his edit but even after that he is suggesting the same edit is there anyway to prevent him from suggesting edit..!!

  • Keep rejecting him. He will be auto banned from editing after a certain number of bad edits. – nhahtdh Feb 17 '14 at 5:21
  • my bad 20 suggested edits for a day got over..!! :( – Amarnath Balasubramanian Feb 17 '14 at 5:22
  • Looking at the history, most reviewers are quite level-headed and reject his edit, so don't worry about it. – nhahtdh Feb 17 '14 at 5:23
  • is there any way to block these kind of users or where we can complain about them?? – Amarnath Balasubramanian Feb 17 '14 at 5:24
  • Most reviewers. We need to shame hd1. Shaaame! – user229044 Feb 17 '14 at 5:29
  • I guess he lost his eyesight..!! :P – Amarnath Balasubramanian Feb 17 '14 at 5:30
  • By posting here, you already put up a complaint about him. I don't think you need to do anything further, since the system is working (most people are doing their job and rejects his edits), he will get banned from editing if he continues. – nhahtdh Feb 17 '14 at 5:32
  • This one got one approval: stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/4077008 And of course, see here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/220849/… – Matthew Lundberg Feb 17 '14 at 5:36
  • @MatthewLundberg - Only one reviewer approved it. Overall it was rejected. – hims056 Feb 17 '14 at 5:37

    and the one which is not acceptable is, the user who approved it has around 9k reputaion...!! :( – Amarnath Balasubramanian Feb 17 '14 at 5:39

Don't worry about it. If his suggestions are rejected he will soon be banned from suggesting edits at least for a week. Also, his every troll edits are rejected quickly. For this particular user he has 4 rejected edits. As per the formula (rejects - (approvals / 3)) >= 5 he needs one more rejected edit to get ban.

Also, you don't need to complain about every troll editor, since they are banned automatically.

    Yes, this guy's edits are (almost always) rejected (should be always!). But too often, very bad edits get through. Acceptance of edits is the norm, no thought necessary. – Matthew Lundberg Feb 17 '14 at 5:39
  • @MatthewLundberg - Yeah, that is the most frustrated thing about reviewing suggested edits. – hims056 Feb 17 '14 at 5:43
