Idea: Don't "bump" a topic to the top (when sorting by activity) if making a "minor edit"

I have a bad habit of silently modifying my posts after submitting them. Mainly, I'm just refining some of the word and sentence structure choices I made, in an effort to make the posts as easily understandable as possible. Everytime I make this kind of a minor edit, the topic bumps to the top of the list, when sorting by activity.

Now, I'm not trying to fish for more views of my topics but it might seem that way when a topic jumps to the top 6 times a day without anyone having posted an answer.

So, my suggestion is: if it's a minor edit, it doesn't really warrant for more attention by bumping the topic to the top of the list, so just keep the topic where it was.

Anyone agree?

totally agree that there should be an option to prevent the topic to jump to the top. Doing some minor adjustments for questions always lifts up question to the top in activity sorting list.
