I proposed an edit to this answer to one of my questions.
The edit consisted of replacing two single quotes with two double quotes. The sample code in the original answer failed to compile; the edited version compiled and ran as advertised.
Peer review of the edit rejected the edit with the apparent stock-phrase:
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
Subsequently I pointed out the bug in a comment, whereupon the code's author promptly performed exactly the same edit that had I proposed.
Surely a simple bugfix to posted code is aimed at everyone reading the code, not just the author. Rejecting the edit merely delayed a necessary bugfix and increased the amount of effort required to get it done and the number of people involved.
Was this a reasonable rejection of the edit?
