OK to ask for in-post correction?

It seems that people agree that weblogs should correct errors of fact in posts rather than just assume people will read comments.

So, next question: if you notice a factual error in someone’s post, should you point it out if it seems important to you? How far can you go in insisting on a correction? Do the answers to the previous questions change if the error is related to you or your work somehow?
