I'm having some trouble understanding why my suggested edit to this question was rejected:
The question is a few paragraphs long, but the vast majority of it is just the asker talking about how he much he hated the final episode but liked the show Enterprise overall. None of this is relevant to the question, and really has no place in a SE post (we're a Q&A site, not a blog or discussion forum). So because it was just a lot of irrelevant fluff, I stripped it all out of the question and modified it to:
The final episode of Enterprise had a lot of build-up to a dramatic speech by Archer at the formation of the foundation of the Federation, but we never get to heat it.
Do we have Captain Archer's speech from "These are the Voyages" in written form that I can read? Was there an audio recording or even better a video of it that might be a deleted scene?
However, my edit was rejected because:
This edit deviates from the original intent of the post. Even edits that must make drastic changes should strive to preserve the goals of the post's owner.
But that isn't the case at all. The original intent of the post was that the asker wanted to hear the speech Archer gave in the final episode, since it's exclusion hurt the users enjoyment of the finale. The opening paragraph about how much he loves the series, along with the other paragraph about how much he hated the finale and the link to fan reception isn't relevant to that at all. It's the kind of thing that belongs on a blog or chat room, not in a SE question, and all it does is clog up the question.
So, given that, I really don't understand why my edit was rejected, because it doesn't make any sense to me. Could someone clarify?
