in reply to Post-Posting Etiquette

This is what I do: typos and small mistakes, I correct, without annotation. Same for additional text, but only very shortly after submission.

Any larger changes I post as a reply to my own post - and never with a bold update. Why? Because a reply will go into the newest nodes list, while an update doesn't. If you update a post I already read, I probably never will see your update. But if you reply, I will at least be made aware of it, and if the thread interests me, I'll read it.
