I'm sometimes puzzled by a question from the deep past that suddenly becomes
active. I've recently seen it happen with this question, but I'm sure it has happened before. In this case an answer was edited and appostrophies added around a name of a latex command...In my opinion this should NOT trigger the question becoming active...though I'm not sure what is the best way of doing that.
I propose adding a 'This is a minor edit'-tickbox when editing an answer/question (like in wikipedia) to indicate that the question should not become active, subscribers to the question should not get notified etc.
What do you think?
