As my rep is approaching the 2,000 mark and I'll soon be able to edit posts without peer reviewing, I feel the need to ask if I'm on the right track.

I almost felt bad for editing his terribly formulated question into a more civilized wording.
Is this kind of editing encouraged or should I leave this as it is?
Why am I asking this?
Well, problem is that a certain amount of new users seem to be unwilling to 'play by the rules.' They ask rubbish questions and don't pick the correct answer afterward. Editing their poorly worded entries doesn't exactly stimulate new users to be more precise in the future. I know it's not about 'winning' or scoring rep, but I can imagine this growing flow of low quality entries to eventually pollute the system too much. Don't get me wrong here, I love editing and contributing to a better Stack Overflow. Quality questions, better formulated questions help us all. But one can imagine the frustration it might evoke on some.
How do we feel about this?
