I could not find a similar question - so please tell me if this is a duplicate.
I find myself often in the situation where I need explanation for a proof I read from a text, whether regarding definition, or a simple step. In most cases, the proof is not short, and I would have to break down the question and post in separately on MSE. I fear if I do so, I would be spamming MSE with 3 or 4 questions at once.
I thought of three possible choices:
i) Post separate questions (around 3)
ii) updating the same post with a new problem (rewriting the old)
iii) Post all questions in one long post; which is tedious for the reader.
I wonder which of the above choices - or other alternatives - is better for the MSE community?
PS. Alternatively, if there is a "hide" feature (requested elsewhere in this site) I could make a single post that contains all the questions, and content (which is useful, as sometimes I also have to copy definitions, and a hide bar would really help out).
