I took a look at some Stackoverflow Q&A and noticed the thorough scrubbing that's done. The main thing I notice is the scrubbing for conciseness (after the usual grammar, etc is done). One effect is that the question is less "personal", anecdotes of how the problem was reached is removed. In the end, the question may indeed turn out to be very different from how it was originally phrased.
Do we eventually want to do similar scrubbing? Do we want to strive for those "standards"? Or do we want to be a little less formal?
Or whoever has the time and interest to do such scrubbing, should just go ahead? Or would we prefer that they defer doing such type of activity for the meantime?
For reference, one of the questions I stumbled where I looked at its history more: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1642028/what-is-the-name-of-the-operator
I don't know how "representative" the question's history is, so I may be unduly influenced by it. In my opinion, the scrubbing it did does make the question sound more professional with its crispness.
