Should links and excerpts from relevant documentation be an edit, or should they be a comment, or should they be a separate answer? If this had simply been the case, of modifying the links that were already provided by the author, I suspect your edit would have been approved.

I'm in the habit of editing answers to add links to this relevant content whenever I find myself googling something in the answer. Oh, for goodness's sake, don't do this.

Edits which unambiguously improve posts should be accepted. Adding links to documentation is an improvement. There is no good reason to reject such an edit. However, suggested edits are reviewed by numerous people, all of whom have their own feelings and opinions. Some people have a strange bias against edits to old posts, for some reason, while I would see ...

"Instead of asking what to buy, try asking how to find out what suits your needs." - That is exactly what I did!? You actually just described all the difficulty you had configuring your current hardware and the defects your current hardware has from your perspective. Yet within the few minutes it was open, two users commented, who had - in ...
