Is it unethical to go back and edit hubs which have already seen traffic?


When time allows, do you go back through older hubs and check for broken links and grammatical errors? I often find myself doing this, and sometimes rewording a paragraph or two for clarity. Do you consider this unethical? Even if the meaning stays the same, is it poor form to edit something which has already been commented on in its original form? I never change the meaning of a hub after a point has been addressed in a comment, but now I'm wondering if any edits at all still violate journalistic integrity.
