We have this answer and a proposed edit https://workplace.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/72814
I made this edit to remove offensive characterization of people who take Software Freedom seriously (the question author names them "zealots"), without changing the overall meaning of the answer.
The edit was rejected, and I can see that the only user who reviewed the edit was the question author. The reason given is:
This edit deviates from the original intent of the post
I see 2 problems here:
- The edit doesn't actually deviate from the original intent of the post, unless the whole point of the answer is to offend a group of people (which is not a valid goal on this site, if I understand it correctly);
- The fact that an edit can be declined by 1 person.
I don't think the answer in its current form is OK; if something is wrong with the proposed edit, something else has to be done to it.
