Take Down or Update?
Here’s a nice discussion that cropped up yesterday while doing that post on the iPhone. Jayvee suggests I should take down the post because my theory was incorrect. Take down the post means I should delete the entry or put it back in draft.
However, I believe that (just like my archives which are full of grammatical errors and typos) they should be left published for posterity sake. I don’t subscribe to the practice of taking down posts unless they pose a security threat to me or to someone else, the court of law orders me to do so, or if it violates privacy statutes.
I believe the best way is to update the post at the end and explain the revision. That way, readers will know the original story, the alpha and the beta version and then the final version. *heh*
So, what’s your take? Do you just update or you take down posts?
