I provided an answer to the following question: NBA Wingspan-To-Height Ratio
A few days later, an edit was made to the question. The word "wingspan" was replaced with "armspan," and the following edit reason was provided:
People have arms, not wings.
I found two things wrong with this edit:
- "Wingspan" is widely accepted terminology in the NBA. As noted in my answer, the NBA draft combine uses "wingspan" in their measurements. There was nothing wrong with the terminology as initially used.
- Ignoring any potential sarcasm, I found this edit to not only be petty, but also granular and pedantic. Had my answer been edited, I would have reedited it to reinclude the initial terminology.
I was pleased to see the question get reedited to reinclude the original terminology used by the OP.
How receptive are we to petty edits like this?
