I suggested an edit to this question, in order to remove what I considered to be irrelevant meta-commentary:
I recently asked this question on Math StackExchange however, I, now, like many others believe that it would be more appropriate to post it here. Thanks in advance.
with the comment:
removed meta-commentary (the link to Math SE was dead in any case) and "thanks in advance"
Nevertheless, my edit was rejected by the OP.
Why was this so? What does such a comment (with a dead link) about what the OP "and many others believe" (now...) or not add to the question here?
