First, I understand originators of content—questions or answers—hold higher weight than others when it comes to edits of their content. But I am at a loss to understand why my suggested edit to this answer was rejected with the reason being:
This edit does not make the post even a little bit easier to read, easier to find, more accurate or more accessible. Changes are either completely superfluous or actively harm readability.
I added copy edit fixes but mainly added contextual links to items in question that clearly support the answer’s assertions.
To be fair and in context, I made this edit after the user in question—in my humble opinion—behaved like a troll on a question I posted and have since asked to be deleted. So yes, I clicked their profile, saw they are knowledgeable about Star Trek and simply made an edit to add more context and validation to a good answer they provided. But for the community member to have rejected it for the reasons outlined seems odd at best; maybe they took it as a personal slight on their work?
But regardless, why was this edit—which added references and links to a valid answer—rejected with the reason given? Are users not encouraged to provide a larger context for the answers given by providing clear links and supporting evidence?
