On a different SE, a new user asked a very poorly constructed question. This individual asked a legitimate question within the scope of this SE but the user doesn't know how to write paragraphs and has twenty indented sentences. The user also started by stating he was "noob" and had no idea what is going on. The inexperienced user then proceeds to fill his legitimate question with very amateur and redundant parenthetical statements that not only obscure the clarity of the question, but also reveal the OP lack of general familiarity with the subject.
I don't want to alienate new users so I made a few readability edits while leaving the question intact. I also made a comment with a few pointers.
I'm not sure if what I did is the best course of action. Should I leave the user to fix these major stylistic issues or should I do it for them? For the sake of the question, I wanted it be answered but the user really needs to learn proper style.
Also, the user signed with a silly (a failed attempt at humor) hashtag -- I really have no idea what to say. I personally think such unnecessary additions should be omitted but seeing that I am only a plebeian user, I feel like removing such things may be outside my jurisdiction.
