Silent edit option for editing forum posts
I edited a post earlier tonight, and it created a separate email notification to the entire group. Is this expected behavior? I don't think this should be the default behavior, as it creates two emails in a row about the same post. At the least, I think we should give people an option to do a "silent edit" that does not create an email notification.
If we create a "silent" option, we should still leave an indication that the post was edited from its original form -- we should probably follow the practice of message boards, which often leave a note like "[user] edited this post on [timestamp]"

Matt - Yes, this is expected behavior.
Dan, could you have a look at this for 1.9? See the Docs editing interface for some language and UX you can borrow. You'll need to intercept bbPress before it creates a BP activity item, and prevent that activity item from being created. It's probably as simple as a `remove_action()` call :)

I just encountered this on the Commons while editing a forum post.
Long story short, this is a bbPress bug with a fix that is scheduled for bbPress 2.6.0; bbPress is currently at v2.5.8. We forgot to add our fix to bbPress when it was updated to 2.5.8.
To avoid having to modify bbPress every time until bbPress 2.6.0 is released, I've added a fix that is no longer reliant on hacking bbPress.
See commit 690ff30.
Marking as resolved. This fix should be added on December 1st.
