After the discussion in Should I add the self-study tag to a question that is copy-pasted from a book? it seems the status quo is to not add the self-study tag without the author consent.
I'm facing an edit like that right now. If I were to deny it (I won't, I'm skipping, that would be leakage on my part), what reason should I present?
- spam or vandalism
- no improvement whatsoever
- clearly conflicts with author's intent
- attempt to reply
- causes harm

I usually type a custom message for the editor telling them to leave a comment for the OP. Here is some example text:
It is best not to add the tag, but to ask the OP to do it so that they will be familiar w/ our policies.
