I'm relatively new to serverfault/stackexchange, though not to systems administration. I've posted only a few answers here so far. In the last day, two of my posts were edited by other users. I get it, creative commons, etc. - I've been editing on wikipedia for many years, have 10k edits there, I know how it works. If I don't like it, tough noogies.
As a matter of, well, I don't know, courtesy? I find it rather annoying to have someone come in behind me and fix my lack of capitalization.
I've habitually written like this for longer than I can remember (and for the young'uns, that means at least thirty years now). It's a stylistic choice. where necessary/appropriate, I'll use proper capitalisation. In the relatively informal setting of the internet, and a gathering place where one's expertise is what matters, it seems a bit passive-aggressive to be editing another bloke's words for such a trivial reason.
Another post that was edited also fixed the caps, but in addition did some trimming of what I wrote to conform to what that author apparently thought was nicer wording or style - perhaps a touch less verbose than it initially was. Still, it strikes me as a bit passive aggressive. The actual useful information of both posts was unchanged - and isn't it the informative content that matters? Editing other's posts wily-nilly for stylistic reasons just seems rather in-your-face.
If my posts had typos, I'd have no issue with someone bouncing in and fixing them for clarity, that seems an appropriate fix of someone else's post. Likewise, if I wrote something largely correct but left out a 'not' or something that completely changed the meaning, sure, go ahead and fix the error. My writing style? Really?
Hey, this is 'meta', so I figure it's worth asking what others think of this.
