However, It did not really modify the question, It rather just visited it.
It didn't do that either. Community is not a real person; it can't "visit" anything. It chose it semi-randomly from a list, and set the LastActivityDate on it to the current time in order to make it appear on the active lists.
This is the same thing that happens when someone edits the post, edits an answer to the post, reopens the post, etc.
Until relatively recently, we didn't track which kind of activity caused that date to be updated; editing a question and answering both just showed up as "modified", as did every other type of activity that could alter a post in any way. Now, we track three separate types of activity: asking, answering, and... everything else. Anything in that last category still shows up as "modified".
In theory, we could expand that list to cover the myriad reasons for why a post will appear active. In practice, this is a task with quickly diminishing returns; there are a lot of places where someone (or something) can make a post active, to say nothing of the millions of existing posts with activity dates that may or may not correlate to any specific reason we can identify. And the more work we do on it, the more incongruous the remaining reasons lumped under "modified" will become... If you're this concerned about this particular "lie", then what will you have to say about a post I deleted, undeleted, closed, merged, and edited all in the span of 5 minutes? Is there any reasonable term that describes that accurately beyond "modified"? For that matter...
What do you call what Community does?
As I said above, it certainly hasn't been visited - for that matter, visiting a post doesn't normally cause it to rise to the front page, so that's actually worse at explaining what's happening than the current state of affairs. Most of us call it "bumping", because that's the purpose (and observable effect): it gets "bumped" to the home page. This is... pretty jargony though. There are a lot of folks on these sites now who probably wouldn't understand that, so we'd have to document it somewhere - which is already done in Community's profile. Same for "poked", which seems like something of a slang term for "minor modification" anyway - at least, that's how it's used in Community's profile, which is presumably where you got this idea. "Promoted" is... ok... But maybe sets up the wrong expectations here; these aren't bumped because they've been identified as good or worthy, they're bumped because someone took the time to answer them and hasn't gotten any feedback positive or negative yet. They could be awful and useless... In some cases, the best use for bumping is to identify stuff that fell through the cracks and needs to be removed!
Which brings me to my last concern: why is this even intruding on your consciousness so often that you're bothered by it? Every site with qualifying questions gets regular community bumps, but in my experience the only time these hang around for an appreciable amount of time is on sites that are... Not well. Not just quiet and slow, but suffering mightily from both moderation and positive feedback; again, the only questions that qualify are those that have answer(s) but no votes on those answers - if you're seeing a lot of those around, there is something desperately ill about the site you're seeing them on.
...and unfortunately, "this is a cry for help from" is too long to put in the activity-type string.
