This notice:

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If these answers do not address your question, please ask a new question.

vs. this one:

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If these answers do not address your question, please edit this question to explain how it is different or ask a new question.

    I think one is "On hold" which is semantically different from "Closed". – MikeTheLiar Oct 7 '13 at 16:46

As stated in the comment, the second post notice only appears for the original poster of the question. Other users only see the first notice. In the past, only the first one would appear to all users.
