There is another thing that I find annoying about nodes that are modified, and that isn't at all solved by plastering update in big bold letters in the posting.

If I read a note, and then you update it, I will never see the update. I can't smell the node was updated, and it won't re-appear on the newest node list. What's even worse, sometimes people update their list, to reflect the issues mentioned in a followup. But the person doing the followup won't be notified!

I only update my nodes to fix spelling or grammar errors, nitpicks in code, or to add a line or two for clarification (but I do the latter only right after posting the original). Otherwise, I just followup to my node.

(Of course, this discussion about updated nodes has happened before.)
