    The "Editbot" tool: Why it is "show upto x corrections"?

    It is very ambiguous. "Show up to ....... corrections" means you are asking it to show only some corrections, not all. The language is not correct. Editor using such ambiguous language himself is not to be trusted.
    The wording should be "show the corrections ( x )". The word "up to" should be removed from it and the number of corrections can be shown within brackets.

    That's true, Ven. I have been thinking that same thing. It should edit itself!

      Yes, edit itself first and then try to edit our hubs. Thanks for the reply.

    Seeing that it is the same subject matter, can I pls put a question about the Editbot?   What is the point of the Editbot when it is pointing to the comments?  Should we be editing that?  I feel that when someone else writes on my page, I should not be editing it.
    What do others think? 
    Another question.  If I agree to the edits, why does the editbot still stay there.  It is annoying.

      It is not really changing comments just correcting typos in grammar. There is nothing for us to do as the errors are fixed. Hopefully, the "bots" will go away after a certain time period.

    Marie, nice to see you. You can consider Editbot as a language teacher, correcting your grammar. Whether it is your hub content or comments done by others, that is not Editbot botheration. It is simply correcting and letting you know that such and such mistakes have been corrected. If you agree to the corrections, then you need not do anything. If you don't agree, then uncheck the correction. That's all what you can do.
    Regarding the comments corrected, the commenter should be wise enough to understand your helplessness.
    The Editbot should disappear after you approved the comments. But it is not doing so. The Hubpages has already mentioned this fact in other threads and they are trying to do something about it. Till then, we have no option but to bear with their presence.

      Looks you are very well informed V.M.  Thank you for the full explanation.  I am glad to hear that the moon-men are supposed to go back to their moonscape - at least,  in due course.  I am still against tinkering with readers' comments.
