I had to read the article twice before I found the edit... they took out one comma.
I do have a tendancy to overuse commas.
Happens quite a lot. They do highlight in red for anything removed and green for anything added. I just browse for those colors, if I see nothing (could happen if it's just a comma that is highlighted) I don't bother with it. Would save you time on actually reading.
An edit is an edit, no matter how small. When they make one, they automatically notify you. I'm glad they do because it allows me to see the issue and correct saved copies accordingly OR decide that they made a mistake and make corrections.
They did a similar edit on mine, but it was "the" to "your" or the other way around I can't remember, very simple.
I reckon they will find more serious errors on other pages.
I mostly read just the edits also. Usually I let them go. Once or twice I've changed an edit back to the way it was before––mainly when the editor has combined two words that really should be separate. Mainly it's punctuation and formatting that they're looking for. If they do a more complete edit they call it something else . . . which I've also had done. Since I'm a bit of a perfectionist, I appreciate their keeping an eye out.
I find the red and green highlighting useful to check what has been changed.
I checked my first 2 edits that had the exclamation points over the edit symbol. The red exclamation is gone now but the edit symbol is still there. Do I need to do something else?

First, apologies to Tori since it will SEEM like I'm picking on her HotD - I'm not. These featured hubs need to be touched by an editor if Hubpages is ever going to be taken seriously as a 'real' writing site.1. The Title is Wordy2. Restain should be re-stain3. FIRST sentence, misspelled word:...
