I see several answers that seem like a mixture of a straightforward, probably correct answer, with a very loosely related semi-rant at attorney's, judges, and courts. Is it within the etiquette of the site for a third party to edit out the semi-rant and therefore improve the answer and the tone of this site for future readers?
- Edit would change the substantive content or primary purpose of the post: flag it instead
- Edit wouldn't change the substantive content or primary purpose of the post: attempt an edit, clearly explaining the reason for it. Posts, of course, may be re-edited in the event someone disagrees.
