There has been a huge spurt in the number of edits on questions and answers, as most of you would have noticed.
I am not against editing; I actually appreciate many of the edits, including the ones on my posts. They really were worthwile and made much sense to me.
Please note I am not posting this on meta to point fingers, grill, roast, bake or fry anyone here: I just feel we need to sit down (if not already) and discuss/realize that editing has reached a new maximum, especially on very old posts, and correct ourselves if necessary.
I wish to highlight that they are being bumped to the home page, and really cloud up the place. Our community isn't that small and is having a steady inflow of new users and new questions everyday.
None of the above matters, but this does: I really was quite disappointed at the trivial nature of several edits (refer to links at the end and in comments) and the incompleteness of some others.
The SE system is very transparent, and I have been studying this for quite some time now.
Editing is encouraged: please help our site edge towards perfection. But I hope you might offer some insightful discussion with regards to the present situation, and exercise discretion and restraint when necessary.
Some examples for the sake of reference: Unnecessary edit: https://chemistry.stackexchange.com/posts/73089/revisions Incomplete+Unnecessary edit(image description is vital): https://chemistry.stackexchange.com/posts/115071/revisions
Please take it positively, we all care about the site.
Some have highlighted that the user was purposely bumping posts to the homepage. In that case the edit summary must have mentioned that, provided the bump was necessary. In most cases it wasn't.
