The FAQ encourages editing one's own question "to provide status and progress updates. [...] This will naturally bump your question". However, what is our stance on additionally labelling the edited question as "UPDATED", as has been done in this case? Personally, I regard such labelling as somewhat cluttering up the site, and I would undo the changes to the question title either immediately or at least as soon as an answer has been acccepted.

    Agreed, "UPDATED" in the title should be discouraged. Jan 17 '11 at 15:02

    Also leave a comment for the op when you change it, so that it won't be repeated.

I have removed the label "UPDATED" from the respective question and left a comment explaining my motives. (Hopefully, the comment was somewhat tongue-in-cheek.)
