I'm questioning this edit. I'm used to emphasizing updates, such that people know what's new. I've seen this practice since I'm a member on SO, and used it myself quite often - and it's being edited out for the first time.
I personally believe that it is a good practice, especially in a very long question where it is difficult to find the updates. German newspapers also follow this practice online (but they rather use em than bold).
Is this not a practice on CR?
Some additional information (see how I do not emphasize this update to see whether you pay attention):
- The edit was at the end of the question from a question point of view. The update was only followed by code, which I rather saw as an attachment than (text) question itself.
- I was going to refer to the update commenting the answer given in that post, so that was supposed to help that.
- I agree that the edit history could reveal this - I just hadn't been using that personally, so I hadn't thought of that as a potential to find the edit.
