Posting a reply to ones own question

I understand that it looks unusual, and at first I wondered when a reply should be used instead of posting a new message.

The problem is how do you continue a thread within the board when the messages are related or better understood if view together?

After thinking a little about it, if the reply to one's own message is additional information on the original message, then a reply should be used because it keeps the thread within the message board organized and allows other to see the related information.

The other situation is that the reply message is related to the original, so it seems better to reply than the post a new message.

In the two messages in question, the original was my first intital impressions, and the follow up was after I had a chance to look at more information discussed in the first posting, so I posted my followup as a reply.
