Best practice: previously, previouslier, and ALL THE PREVIOUSLY

When a subject of an FPP has been posted about once or twice, it's easy enough to include the usual (previously) link or two. If that applies to more than one subject in a post, sometimes it's easy to provide the details in the extended description area in one way in another. Lately I've started to notice that some posts I make have subjects that have been visited too many times to list individually, so I have just been linking the (previously) to the MeFi search results. However, this is imperfect because it will sometimes include unrelated posts. As a poster, how do you deal with (previously) links? As a reader, what is your preference regarding format and labeling conventions?

Somewhat related to this, when did the terms "previouslier" and "previousliest" come into usage? The Mefi Wiki is providing no answers.

When people link to previous discussions of someone's AskMe question, is this a chastisement or someone being helpful? [more inside]

How about a Previously Box? People often make FPPs and link previous posts. Previously, previously, previously. Pretty Please? Previously (partially). [more inside]

Same link? No. Double post? Yes.

Isn't this a double post?

Should we be vituperative about links that already appeared on BB?

Did someone take over stavros' account?. I think most people disagree with his sentiments, but more importantly the way in which he voices them is entirely uncalled for.
