Re: Re: The article keeps changing
"so any comments made don't suddenly look weird"
Better: email corrections@theregister with reports of typos, grammatical errors, inaccuracies and unclear wording - then we can fix the problem immediately rather than read every single comment. We get those emails straight away.
Also: articles are more or less static once published, but in the same way newspapers produced 1st, 2nd and 3rd editions for each daily issue, there may be, if necessary, some tweaking soon after publication – mainly to insert bootnotes, run a better headline, add extra detail, clarify things, etc.
Substantial updates, or new developments, are flagged up as such, and it's policy to leave archived stories as-is. But having left the newsprint world and embraced the web, I cannot fathom why you'd not want to take advantage of instant publishing to make articles as fresh and clean as possible.
