It seems like the Community user that's supposed to be "a background process to keep this site clean", somehow figured out that an answer contained an unformatted quote and formatted it.

Is it really THAT smart? Or am I being rick-rolled here? User id of -1 suggests that no, it really is a special user.

Community makes edits when an anonymous user makes a suggested edit. An unregistered or registered user has an identity on the site that we can link, but someone who entirely lacks an account doesn't. As a result, Community owns those edits.

  • I thought anonymous users get called something like user93823.

    That's a user who simply hasn't picked a display name
