So, this evening I stumbled upon this question in the reopen queue:
I remembered it, because I was the one closing it, and leaving a comment asking for clarification. When examining it, I found it now contained a goal that IMO wasn't in line with the comment the OP left:
@Tinkeringbell, 26 y.o. , he is 30. I am from Europe and he is too, from the same country. I tried to humiliate him in responce but i cant do it so poisonous as he does it. he is a stupid asshole. I would like to shut his mouth and make him suffer, i want him to stop humiliate me or anybody, i want him to go day after day in sadness.
The question was edited, and that edit was approved by reviewers (I missed that fact). I rolled back the edit, because as far as I was concerned, the edit wasn't in line with the original goal of the OP.
Here's the text of the edited question:
How do I deal with one who belittles me at work at every opportunity?
A colleague at work keeps boasting about his sexual adventures, and my lack of such things, and keeps hurting my self-confidence at every turn. He belittles and insults me , and I feel verbally abused. I am 26 years old, and he is 30. Both of us belong to the same European country.
I'm unable to retaliate effectively as I'm not very eloquent with words. I have to keep working beside him.
How do I get him to stop doing this or even get back at him so that I can get some closure, and put my mind at rest?
I left a comment for the editor, stating that this goal/question was in my opinion not in line with the comment above, 'want him to go day after day in sadness' doesn't sound like 'I want closure' to me.
- Was this a good edit?
- With regard to the little policy we have on questions asking for skills that are harmful to others, like Pick Up Artistry, is asking for ways to get back at people a good goal?
- Is this edit true to the authors original intent?
