You can always find something else to correct - in this snippet I'd maybe change "the key of the receiving party" or 'the used password" to the password they have used, and include that you've done the additional grammar fixes cause of the lameness filter. Eventually, once you've enough reputation, you can make even small edits directly.

    however if you use the practice as above, most times you'll be editing more than a few characters. It's very rare that I actually make small edits. – James Mertz May 19 '14 at 16:08
  • Very frequent situation: everythink is ok, except the code needs formatting. While formatting, many spaces/linebreaks adds, nevertheless "Edits must be at least 6 characters". Why do I have to edit a GOOD question text? I think it is more correct to put such edition into the reviewing queue. – Akina Feb 1 at 5:54

I use the html codes < strike> and < /strike> (without the spaces).

Added:
Since this is frown upon, I suppose you can add blank spaces and new lines (since they will be removed automatically).

    Don't do that, please. There is a revision history for the purpose of finding out what changed. Striking out just distracts. – slhck May 18 '14 at 7:26
  • As I originally asked for an easy way (for who made the correction), it should technically work. – Al3n May 19 '14 at 10:32
  • @Al3n - I assume you want something that won't upset other people and where your edits will actually be approved. I personally won't approve edits like LDC3 suggests. Find something else to correct, if you can't, that might be a signed the edit actually to minor. – Ramhound May 20 '14 at 23:18
  • @Ramhound Yes. And I don't want to make more changes for change just because of static rule. I haven't made the correction. – Al3n May 21 '14 at 1:58
  • @Al3n - It should be telling that you got two moderators telling you something very similar. – Ramhound May 21 '14 at 2:00
  • @Ramhound I didn't try that. I was just wanting the change as less as possible to the original. – Al3n May 21 '14 at 2:31
  • @Ramhound If you see the tags, wouldn't it be better to remove them and use the correction instead of cancelling the edit? After all, the need is to have 6 characters. – LDC3 May 21 '14 at 2:43

    @LDC3 - One could. But a minor edit is still a minor edit. – Ramhound May 21 '14 at 10:53
