I wish that this thread had not promptly become “threaded” so much, thereby diluting its content such that now someone would have to wade through a lot of back-and-forth conversation to glean the “final” meaning out of it -- some of those conversations seeming to be fairly nit-picking anyhow.   Threads, particularly in the Meditations section, are going to be referred-to for many years to come.   I’d therefore suggest that they ought to be built-up in this way, when possible ... you are building a sort of reference article when you write in this particular section.   If you want to debate fine-points, do it over in Seekers, then put a summarization or edit over here, with appropriate hyperlinks to the relevant discussions.   If you want to do major edits, come back up to the first level of reply-nesting.   I think that would make for better final-content, IMHO.   The <strike> strike tag is great to explicitly show edits.   Someone ought to be able to read just the top-article and perhaps the first-level replies and come away with an accurate reply (incorporating all of the various back-and-forths which they didn’t have to wade through) with a minimal amount of reading.   I just think that would be better... it reflects how I use this resource (constantly), anyhow, and what I personally would prefer as a reader.
