Both here and here the original poster seems to be trying to reuse questions, as the edited questions are almost completely different than the originals, which were already answered. Can someone with the necessary powers revert the question edits and contact the OPs (from a previous thread that seems to be the right thing to do)?

    $\begingroup$ For future reference --- I think the way to handle this is to flag the question for moderator attention. Lots of us can revert, but only a moderator can give the author a good talking-to. $\endgroup$ – Gerry Myerson Nov 26 '13 at 6:07

    $\begingroup$ @DanielRust, when I extract others' comments to make a CW post, I want it to be clear to all that they are not mine. $\endgroup$ – dfeuer Dec 1 '13 at 5:15
