I wonder if anyone ( especially a highly experienced engineer ) can tell me what kind of pull requests are rude or inappropriate to do.

I saw some newbie do small fixes in docs or readme folies or some just add unnecessary lines of codes and then do a PR.

I don't know whether these are rude ones or I am thinking about it the wrong way ...
I've also attached an example ...

    What's rude about it? Basic rule of PR is that your English should be proper and grammatically correct.
    Adding '/' to link would be just weird, nd the newb grabbed an opportunity to make a shitty contribution to someone else's pr(or if it's their own, an unnecessary additional commit) . I would squash all those unnecessary commits before making a PR.

    @2Large No this PR is straight up wrong. The slash in the end tells you instantly it's a directory, i guess it's wanted this way.

    It's not rude it's fucken dumb and not thought through.

    @nitwhiz Yeah, small PRs are fine - but they have to be correct.

    Agreed with Sauce. It’s totally okay to do PRs like those small fixes and improvements, that’s why we build CICD for devs! Think agile, merge agile ;)

    But in this case the wrong part is that it is not a correct change so I wouldn’t even categorize that as an improvement, but a small degradation in the documentation

    Maybe he had good intentions, You should have explained him politely why unnecessary PRs don't help.
