Default The double posting rule should be modified

I just made what I believe to be a new observation that should be of interest to S &F players. Rather than cluttering up the forum with a new thread, I located the appropriate thread and went to make a post, only to discover that I had made the most recent previous post in the thread...3 weeks ago.

Not wishing to violate the "double post" rules, I edited my previous post, rather than entering a new one.

Unfortunately, editing a post does not update the post's statistics: that is, the thread looks like no one has posted in 3 weeks. There is nothing to indicate that it contains new information.

So if anyone is interested in learning this new observation, good luck finding it.

Can someone explain to me the purpose of the "double post" rule? I can't really see any.
