My edit was rejected by @Tushar Raj and @Choster, on the grounds that it deviated from the original intent of the post.
I would like someone else to review their decision, as in my opinion the edit was valid.
The OP states:
Should I say he passed me by, or he passed by me?
[I think it's passed me by, but I'm not sure.] The OP is saying that he thinks the correct answer to his question is 'it's passed me by', but that he is not sure. I wanted to remove this sentence.
To explain my thinking:
- the question lacks basic punctuation and context, which was partially remedied by a previous edit and comments. However, I first thought the second sentence was given as example of usage, then realised it wasn't. I then assumed it must be another strand to the question, regarding the meaning and usage of 'it's passed me by', but it wasn't.
- Having finally concluded the OP was asking for positive affirmation of what he thought was the right answer, I was going to insert more punctuation, but am unsure of group etiquette on this.
- I opted for removing the sentence, to try and keep the question as straightforward as possible.
