The question is (redux) "Is there an advantage/difference" but it's a simple shortcut method, and the says so explicitly. Few of the other answers offer significantly more information, except for Stefan's.
At least partially I suspect it's some intra-user hostility as I often need to correct the original commenter's answers, but I doubt that's all of it. So I want to know how it isn't an answer.
(And, curiously, after the question was deleted, it got another downvote--AFAICT that means someone w/ an ability to undelete a question undeleted it, downvoted it, and re-deleted it?!)
