Can moderators etc. can see edits made within 5 minutes?

I ask because I answered a question one minute after someone else but they quickly changed their answer to include information from mine. But since early edits are apparently not recorded it makes it look like I am to blame for duplicating their answer. This sort of thing could become very annoying if it happens again.

No, they cannot. Edits within the grace period are the same as the original entry of the post...


Just a little check... THIS IS AN EARLY EDIT.

Timeline doesn't show an edit either: https://meta.superuser.com/posts/1323/timeline... Too bad :(
