Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8@ParthKohli exactly. I meant to say that the edit history (what is edited) should be visible to all the users . The reason I have given above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What if a person types out "CONNECTIONS ACADEMY HELP...MESSAGE ME THE ANSWER KEY", and when done, changes the question to something random like "abc"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then report it. The question "abc" doesn't make sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8What if the asker changes the question from something appropriate to inappropriate . This is just like devaluing the process of ask and answer. Yes, there is one solution of reporting it, but would you like to have 1000 reports from the same complain " Edited the question to something inappropriate" ? Well, of course not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Use of Edit History function : OS provides function for the users to edit their questions, that is good. But, proper use of editing history if required. We can have a look at the edit history and see what and why was the question edited. We can always warn the askers for inappropriate editing.
