I guess I don't see the problem. ): I don't notice myself
wasting a lot of time jumping to nodes that frustrate me
because they are just corrections or thank-yous.
I do agree that /msg is a better way to point out typos and
just updating a node is a better way to fix many minor
mistakes. But mistakes that seem likely to cause some
readers of the post to come to incorrect conclusions might
be better updated via a reply so the previous readers are
more likely to see the update.
I also enjoy the "thank you" nodes that mention which
solution the person chose and how well it worked for them.
I could certainly do without the "empty" thank-you nodes
but my suggestion would not be to turn them into /msg's
but to add more information to them.
So I mostly agree. :)
(but my friends call me "Tye")
