This site has a policy discouraging hypothetical questions. Normally this means that a question about a hypothetical scenario gets flagged and closed. Recently there has been a question about a hypothetical scenario which was then edited by a third party to read like it was an actual non-hypothetical scenario. This makes it far less obvious what the correct course of action should be.
On one hand, as written the current version of the question is ok. It looks like it's not about a hypothetical scenario.
On the other it's explicitly known that the scenario being described isn't one that the OP experiences since the OP explicitly called it a hypothetical in their earlier draft. While there is a situation being described in the question it's at best one experienced by the person editing the question rather than the OP.
Personally I'm leaning towards rolling back the edit since it conflicts with the OP's intent, to ask a hypothetical, and closing the question because it's a hypothetical, then suggesting to the editor that they can ask their own question about the situation if they personally have experienced the situation. That's a lot of steps though so I'd like input from other members of this site.
How should we handle this situation and others like it in the future?
