This question already has an answer here:
A while back I answered a question and another user recently made a factually incorrect edit to my answer. The edit was approved by a third user, and my post was altered. I was able to reject the edit, but how is this allowed to happen without singular confirmation of the edit from the original poster?
In my opinion, what I write is my voice and my reputation. Any additional information, arguments, or refutations should be added via comment, not via editing a post or comment. If it's an inappropriate post or answer, then it should be deleted.
I feel like there are people roaming around just looking for things to edit frivolously to earn points, and it's irritating that this behavior is actually incentivised.
I suggest at least an option to opt-out of third party edit approvals.
