Are you talking about this review? If so, the editor wasn't scratching out the words - just adding spaces between sentences. The review does make it look like words were getting scratched out, but I don't think that's what was happening there.

The review ended up being rejected, probably due to this misunderstanding, but I believe it was an edit in good faith.

    @Orion: No problem. I can see how it looked super alarming at first!

  • I think it is more reader if the spacing is corrected as in the suggested edit. (I am not the editor) Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 6:02

When you look at https://buddhism.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/2375 there are two buttons (near the top left), which are named "rendered output" and "markdown".

To better see what was changed in an edit, I recommend you use the "markdown" view instead of the "rendered output" view.
