I am trying to edit this answer, which makes a claim about eigenvectors that is not true for all matrices. My edit was rejected. Instead, the editor followed up with a baffling formatting edit that does nothing to address the over-claiming statement in the answer. While I understand my edit is not perfect, it at least makes the answer less wrong.
Surely, it is better to at least give people knowledge of a caveat, rather than let them incorrectly believe an overgeneralization?
