# Is there a guideline telling users not to golf someone else's post in an edit? [duplicate]

I really hate it when a user thinks it's okay to edit someone else's post to golf it. Is this included in the guidelines for suggesting edits at all?

The post in question: https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/24657

Note that one user correctly rejected the edit, listing the reason, but it was approved in the end anyway.

• Just a note, the reason listed by the rejecting reviewer, This edit was intended to address the author of the post and makes no sense as an edit. It should have been written as a comment or an answer. is completely inaccurate. My edit suggestion was actually based on the highest-rated comment on the answer, after which mbomb had already asked "do you want me to change it?" which the question's OP had affirmed, so I was making a good faith edit to do so. As far as the linked meta question, in this case the content of the edit carries 0 possibility of breaking the code. – Dan Henderson Oct 5 '15 at 3:08
