The intent of my edit was to make a focused question.
When I read a question I try to focus on what the asker writes because any other commenters may or may not have understood their intention.
In Finding highest path of DEM or contours file within area using ArcGIS Desktop? @Kate told us what they wanted to do, and asked if anyone had done it successfully in either FME or ArcGIS.
They did not tell us which of the two they wanted to use more in either the question title or body, but they tagged for ArcGIS Desktop, and did not tag for FME.
They also commented on a comment by @Mapperz that they did not think the FME suggestion provided would work.
I came upon this question about half an hour later. After the 50:50 call in the body as to which they might want to ask about first, I saw the ArcGIS Desktop tag, and assumed that weighted it in favour of asking about ArcGIS Desktop first, and if necessary then FME in a separate question.
I may or may not have seen the first two comments saying that they thought the FME suggestion would not work, and if I did, then that made it look more like 75:25 that the way to get this question focused on the software that the asker was leaning towards was with ArcGIS Desktop.
I then edited to focus the question on ArcGIS Desktop.
It looks like I next saw the question 10 months later when, after some comments about the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, it looked like a comment by @GBG might provide an answer, so I quoted it as one.
In the intervening period no one provided an FME answer (and edited the question to retrofit to that), no one provided another FME comment and no one edited the question to focus it on FME instead. All of those may have been helpful to the asker, and the first would have meant that I had no need to provide an answer.
If my intention and actions to help the asker get an answer were right, then I would expect to see it upvoted at some point. If I was wrong, then I expected the asker and/or community to let me know by downvoting my answer or commenting. Either outcome is fine for me because I felt like I had done my best to try and get this question answered in a focused way.
I have no preference for which technology is used in a focused Q&A.

Any other registered user could have suggested the same edit the instant they joined GIS SE, and even an anonymous user can suggest such edits 10 minutes after a question has been posted.
