In Response to: Updates and Response to Feedback & Ideas (Christian Clemmensen)
I like the screenshots, and think including the profile pic in the post is a neat improvement over the avatar.

I like the first two requirements. It can be confusing when someone updates a post that caused a very interesting conversation. I'm not sure why number 3 is necessary... especially since many edits are because someone wants to fix a silly typo or clarify a point. What's the point of fixing a typo if the correction will be highlighted anyway?
Editing is a useful feature, to me at least, and I hate to see it go away because of some headache-inducing technical requirement.
