  • $\begingroup$ @ÉbeIsaac I realise you wanted the answer to look smarter (hey, I'm always in favour of a tidy answer), but maybe in future give gentle nudges to your answerers to guide them towards ways they could improve their answer rather than overriding it yourself - in the process of doing this you've changed JMP's reasoning for one of their responses, presumably to reflect your original intentions; it might have been nice to discuss that difference in opinion in the comments first - just some 'food'(!) for thought. (If this was discussed in comments which have since been deleted, I apologise!) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ÉbeIsaac Okay. Rubio once made a similar point on one of my answers that had been 'ghost-solved' by the OP in this way - just passing on the advice :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @stiv; it's ok, I don't mind Ebe's edit, mine was close enough: "The best example of this is the bull which is the national animal of Spain. In Spain, bull-fighting is a cultural activity that is widely followed across the country. This popularity has led to the bull being a national animal." (from worldatlas.com/articles/…), and bullfighting isn't unique to Spain. Ebe probably wanted the answer to match to his question more accurately, but I agree he should have asked first! $\endgroup$
