> tl,dr; we issue a Mutation(!) on a read when using STCS and there are more than minCompactedThreshold
SSTables encountered by the iterator. (See org/apache/cassandra/db/
> I can see a couple of use cases where this *might* be useful, but from a practical stand
point, this is an excellent way to exacerbate compaction falling behind.
> With the introduction of other, purpose built compaction strategies, I would be interested
to hear why anyone would consider this still a good idea. Note that we only do it for STCS
so at best, we are inconsistent. 
> There are some interesting comments on CASSANDRA-10342 regarding this as well.
