I just tried to add tag "india" to this question, but the "virtual user" "community" instantly rejected this edit.

Why did this happen? Should that happen at all?

    it's likely your edit was auto-rejected by grace period editing made by someone else: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/153403/…

    @gnat Thanks! I tried again, and now it is "pending review".

  • Shog said issue is fixed. I tested - this is indeed so, more recent rejected edit now shows "Conflicted with a subsequent edit"

  • Community is a cold, heartless monster that flags and tags and all kinds of other -ags inappropriately. But we love it anyway. But seriously, if I had a dollar for every time I cleaned up a flag Community issued when it didn't need to, I could ... well I couldn't retire, but I could take my wife out to a nice dinner and maybe a movie too.

I looked at the fancy mod timeline view, and gnat's right, someone else made an edit that overrode yours. It was just bad timing.
