I just saw this suggested edit:
Now, I'm in a bit of a catch-22 situation: I don't want to approve the edit because the resulting post is still terrible, doesn't answer the question at all, is completely unsalvageable as an answer and should be deleted.
On the other hand it removes the bad language. On smaller sites it can sometimes take a long time for posts like this to be removed and I'd rather not have that language sitting around for long (The post was removed by a ♦ mod while writing this question, but it was there for almost 10 hours before being deleted).
If at all possible I would try to improve the post, but there is no chance of a good answer coming out of that (and I had already previously flagged the answer).
What should I do in the case of a suggested edit like this?
As a user with edit priviledges should I edit out bad language on a post that is otherwise unsalvageable?
