Seriously, all three have merits and purposes.
Here's how I do it. Top post: New or expanded contribution to
existing discussion for which what follows is mostly a mnemonic.
Woven post: Responses to specific points and/or (q.v.) ironic or

General/concise/summary followup contribution to content above for
which the content is important to re-read.
