I'm asking in relation this question

In canon, has a Jedi ever killed a Sith using the light side?

I wrote a new answer to that question, and another individual then added my answer to the old, accepted one.

The problem is that it changes the old answer from maybe to yes and isn't what people voted on back when it was written. Also, it makes my answer redundant. Should the edit be rolled back?

    @Möoz - In this instance it wasn't the OP that "stole" the answer, it was another user adding it as an edit to the accepted answer.

This was an inappropriate edit for a couple of reasons

  • It dramatically changed the meaning of the existing answer

  • It borrowed heavily from a new answer to the same question without offering any attribution, making the OP of that question look (to the casual viewer. e.g. one unfamiliar with how the edit-history button works) like they'd taken the answer from you.

I've rolled it back to an earlier version. Kudos on finding a new and potentially better answer to the question within the canon.
