Given that Stack Exchange, Inc. is based in the USA, how does it justify the policy of allowing someone to edit another person's question?
If someone objects to the grammar, formatting, etc. of a question, they can post a comment. No one should be allowed to edit another person's submission.
This is a violation of the right of free speech in the USA.
When you add that the original poster is not notified of the changes and is not given a veto over the changes, Stack Exchange, Inc. is putting itself on very thin ice.
And then there are copyright laws: any question, comment, or answer I post is implicitly covered the USA's (and other countries') copyright laws.
Allowing someone to edit my submission not only violates my free speech rights but also violates copyright laws.
How is this justified? Has there been a legal test of this policy?
