A new user asked How will our world change if all animals suddenly die?. The OP indicated the question was asked as a result of the previous "all men/women suddenly die" questions, which were both closed as too broad, both of which remain closed at this time after meta discussion. In keeping with that idea of such questions, the "animals all die" question was also closed as too broad.
In comments, the OP of "animals all die" gave another user permission to edit the question, which s/he did, extensively. The edit is so extensive, in fact, that the after is almost unrecognizable from the before. The OP expressed surprise at the extent of the edit. The question has since been reopened and again put on hold.
It seems the entirety of the edit was made without input from the OP. While I'm sure the editor had good intentions, I'm not sure this is the kind of edit we should be supporting/encouraging.
