The problem is that folks reading the comments will get confused as well, which is why I left it in but with strike-through. Is it really that unclear that it is a fix?

Yes, it was. I had no idea what the strike-through was supposed to signify so I ignored it and then spent time wondering why a select and then update would be needed.

A better way to handle that is to just reply to the comments in question and mention that you have fixed the problem. Most people will read the article before the comments and struck-through text provides information with no value.
