Haha--yeah, it's a weird, wacky world we live in in the blogosphere. :-)

I think the strike through, when it's not being used for humor's sake, has a lot to do with authenticity, which is very big in blogging.

Folks associate making your corrections obvious with being honest and not trying to fool anyone. I think with most blogs (or at least for me this is true), I appreciate a little rawness, a roughness around the edges, because I feel a little closer to the real person if they're willing to show me their mistakes.

I guess the strike through is also about embracing constant change and how things (ideas, "facts", etc) tend to shift with the input of the readers.

But you're absolutely correct though--web publishing is so much different than other types of publishing. I kinda like the looseness of it though. :-)


Once you publish, you don't change anything. At most, you would use the strikeout key.
