# Should one delete an example that could cause confusion but already helped multiple users to better understand the matter?

I made this rollback of an edit by Cort Ammon, where he removed an (in my eyes) good example that was a way to verify one has understood him correctly in what he was saying. At least another user stated in a comment he was thinking so too.

So I thought it would be a loss to remove that example.

But the reviewers of my edit a) didn't carefully enough check the overall case as they identified my edit just as beeing a comment to the question or a seperate answer (which definitely is not the case).

Or b) I simply missed something about this SE site, where it was not good behaviour of myself to roll back his edit.

So what exactly went wrong in this case?

• The rollback should come from the original poster himself and not from others. Some reason must have prompted him to do so and he explicitly mentioned that in his edit summary - I couldn't find a reference for the glass breaking trick, and it may have been confusing, so I removed it. – user36790 Jul 27 '16 at 14:49
• @MAFIA36790: I'm completly aware of this. but he also mentioned it in hsi comments that he is planing to do this, as he isn't finding an example. And other users pleased him to keep it anyway since it is usefull tough without,# – Zaibis Jul 27 '16 at 14:54
