in thread Edit original article

Indeed, that could be bad. Even articles not on the main page should be static, IMHO; that way it takes at least two clicks (which usually indicates a determined user) to get to possibly mis-rated material. If you have something more to say than the original post, an addendum in a reply will usually suffice. As for making mistakes in articles, always be sure to use the Preview button before submitting.
