I'd just like to point out that "edit uncontroversially" turned into
"uncontroversial copyedits" here - two totally different things. The
vast majority of Wikipedians spend most of their time making
uncontroversial edits on subjects far more interesting and varied than
bunnies and flowers. And they don't have to just be "copyedits" (ie,
spelling and punctuation) either...
