When there is an issue like this, the correct thing to do is exactly what you've done - bring the issue up on Meta where the community can discuss it and figure out the best path forward.
I hope that you won't take rejection of a suggested edit as some sort of black mark on your record. We disagree sometimes on how much editing should be done to questions, (Is it really pointless to edit questions to use correct English on ELL?, How much editing is too much editing?) so there are times when a perfectly fine edit will get rejected and an edit some folks don't agree with will get approved.
It also doesn't help that the revision history of a post isn't displayed when approving suggested edits, so many reviewers judge an edit just by the difference with the previous revision. If it makes you feel better there was one reviewer that approved your suggested edit who probably does review the revision history.
After taking a second look at this question, Lambie's edit should be reversed, because not only did it impact the existing answer, it didn't clarify the question.
Original sentence the querent was asking about
I have told my husband it makes me very uncomfortable and that it almost seems she attends hoping to run into him. Why else would she?
I have told my husband it makes me very uncomfortable and that it almost seems she expects or hopes to run into him. Why else would she?
It was an understandable mistake to make, because at first glance "she attends" seems like a mistake, but it could be OK if you imagine the missing context (she attends the event hoping to run into him). Regardless, the edit here doesn't make the question more clear and it doesn't fix a grammar problem. The question should be clarified by the author adding appropriate context and not by changing the wording of the context sentence.
