Matthew made several useful edits to the question Difference between equal temperament and just intonation but one of them's bothering me. Matthew removed the sentences
I also want to know which one is better. Thanks for the help
Asking which is better is clearly wrong for our site (like many Stack Exchange sites we advise that questioners avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers) but surely that should be pointed out to the questioner in a comment rather than an edit? I also think that in this case the request is an add-on to a good question and the answers are not blown off course. In fact the answers explicitly address the point. For example Wheat starts his answer by saying "one is not better than the other"; but Wheat's statement seems odd with the sentence removed from the question.
Similarly we state in our introductory tour that "There's no chit-chat" but "Thanks for the help" is not chit-chat. Isn't removing that just changing the original poster's voice? Surely that's not good?
So is this over zealous editing, or have I misunderstood best editing practises for our site?
