Lately I noticed quite a number of questions being bumped to the front page that are ancient. Say 8-10 years old.
These (often closed) questions are bumped back to the front page by the acceptance of suggested edits by a single user. It appears they went searching for a common misspelling of a word, and corrected that.
I personally see no value in such edits, as these posts are long forgotten and are very unlikely to be of great value. In the case one would use such a post to close another question as duplicate against, it would make sense to me to fix the post before doing so, but other then that I don't see any need to dig up these old posts.
Is there a general consensus on this type of behaviour?
If the consensus is this behaviour is unwanted, what would be the best course of action?
- @Mention the user making the edits to tell them
- Escalate straight to the moderator team with a custom flag
