According to meta.SO (ref.), a network-wide roll-out of honeypot edits has been implemented. Essentially, some rubbish edits (that appear superficially okay) are added to the suggested edit queue, and if they are deemed suitable, it is noted on that user's account.

Question: Has anyone seen a "honeypot" suggested edit?

The answer to this question until today was "no, not on math.SE."

The reason it changed is at this question.

Okay, it seems I got one too. This one was rather blatant though:

Another first post (and not a suggested edit) but this time it's a high quality post (and not a low-quality post like Douglas Stones's).
