I recently reviewed a suggested edit and this is what I saw:

enter image description here

As you can see, appears twice, once as though it were removed, and once as though it were added. Is this a bug? What does this mean?

That's not a suggested edit thing, that's a tag order thing

Main meta Q on this: Diff shows tag being added and removed in the same revision

The answer to which explains:

The tagging system automatically sorts tags based on how many times they're used. However, this is relatively new, so when a new edit is processed for an old post, the system sees the sort as a delete and re-insert because it is now in a new position.

In the time since that question was last edited, we have gotten net more questions than questions, so the former is now sorted first, unfortunately.
