Before lunch, I lazily (with as much effort as the asker) posted a link to the String class's documentation.

When I came back from lunch, my comment had been edited with code formatting & a proper link.

I'm not debating the quality of the edit, but I've never seen a comment edited by someone else before. Was this an automated edit, or did someone come along and use privileges I'm not familiar with?

It was me. Mods can do that.

I did so because I was reading the link url and saw something like:


Which tells me nothing about the link content. So I made it a little more clear where the link is pointing.

    It's pretty rare. I avoid it unless I think there's a clear benefit.
