This question already has an answer here:

This edit was approved: https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/4179699. However, bolding a few occurences of "github" and "SELinux", and changing "I have to" to "I've to" seems like a very poor edit indeed. The editor has had 131 edit suggestions approved, and 56 edit suggestions rejected, and it seems to me a good number of those approved should probably have been rejected ( this one, for example )

I could roll this edit back, but I don't know if the edit review link will still work at this point, and I'm not yet sure of the guidelines around that.

My question is this: Is it possible to flag individual reviews for attention so that our bored and underworked moderators can send the reviewers a helpful message about editing, and possibly give them a temporary break from suggested edit reviews?

Of course, I'm new to hitting the suggested edit reviews (I generally stay in the close vote list) - I may be wrong about the validity of the edit. If that's the case please let me know in no uncertain terms.

    I agree, this edit is a nonsense. – BartoszKP Feb 27 '14 at 15:52

    "I've to"... I don't think I have ever seen or heard someone use that phrase, ever. They must have been short 2 characters for the minimum acceptable edit. The person suggesting the edit should also get a temporary break. – Johnny Bones Feb 27 '14 at 15:57
  • The same guy has made a lot of changes like that today. I managed to reject a handful of them but most of them got approved quickly :-( – Rup Feb 27 '14 at 16:51

    This edit review would not have been approved, if we had a tennis rule in place. – Robert Harvey Feb 27 '14 at 18:00
  • 100% agree. Sorry I didn't find the duplicate, but it also led me to meta.stackexchange.com/questions/155561/… , which is possibly a better choice to send people to from this question. – Philip Rieck Feb 27 '14 at 19:06
