Notification of people editing my posts

Why do we get notified when administration edit our posts and what exactly are they editing?

The only thing an authorized person can do to edit your post is to change a category. For example, I’m changing this post to the Meta category, because it has to do with general Discourse activity, not Grasshopper.

So am I missing something when selecting categories?

it can also be pretty helpful i must say or lets say assuring, when you know that something is being tagged, it gives you a good feeling that it’s been taken care of somehow, versus waiting for days not even knowing if someone has seen it.

@sam @discourse this looks like a new bug? It seems our twiddling of the handled/unhandled tag should be completely silent to users.
