Today I saw an edit to this question which is also the most viewed question in TeX.SE. The edit is pretty much useless and it not even actual improved formatting (bolding the parenthesis!). I honestly don't want to be cynical but I really don't find any actual contribution behind such edits.
I see these type of edits every on and off and I believe they are done by honest users for sake of improving the website, however, sometimes I can not help it not to think that few of these edits are there solely for sake profile views and/or reputation.
I don't find myself in position to roll-back these edits. Shouldn't we have some sort of flags for edits that are pointless, as well as having a mechanism to protect some of the answers from being edited by users?
