Comment (by alanchrishughes):

 Replying to [comment:1 DJPaul]:
 > You couldn't differentiate an intentional follow-up comment (maybe they
 missed something) vs a correction. Hiding self-replies in the first case
 would not show the full discussion (even if it's a monologue) to another
 user, viewing that first person's activity stream; this would be
 detrimental to core, though is probably achievable by a plugin or other

 I don't think you are following what I am saying or probably I just didn't
 explain it right. I am suggesting any time a user replies to a post of
 their own (not just specifically corrections) notifications of this reply
 SHOULD NOT show up in their activity stream.

 Imagine I ask "Where is a good place to get Chinese food in Parkersburg?"
 I get 6 suggestions and I reply to each one. Now I have 6 pointless posts
 above my actual post, all saying "alanchrishughes replied to...
 alanchrishughes replied to.... alanchrishughes replied to..."

 If that conversation goes on for any extended period of time, it wont even
 be on the first page any more because of all the reply notifications.

 On Facebook each user has the option to turn off notification posts even
 for when you post or reply on other people's walls.
