Status update has been increasingly misused as of late. It is for short announcements, typically of a personal nature, where you aren't expecting a lengthy conversation, and not for making pronouncements which would be out of bounds if made in posts (e.g. closed topics, complaints about moderation or potshots against science to name three popular subjects that are inappropriate)
Multiple post updates suggest you need to blog. If you want substantive responses, it should be a thread on the forums.
