Don't repeat the ping when editing chat messages

It's quite irritating to have a chat message re-ping several times when it's edited. Can we change the ping code so that it only re-pings if the @ was added/changed?

I've made the same request in "Don't repeat the ping when editing chat messages" a while back, it didn't go over all that well. – Mad Scientist Jul 23 '12 at 14:35

I'm against this feature request.

When I'm pinged, and the author changed the content of the sentence, I like to have the correction pinged. Even if it's just a typo, it's often something worth a ping.

How cheap is a ping btw?!

99% of the time it's just fixing a typo or indentation though? – Esailija Jul 23 '12 at 14:35
