This seems pretty formal/professional for an HN comment. Is there some reason you're writing summaries of HN posts with this degree of effort?

Also, thanks.




It's one of the contexts in which I'm willing to be the change I want to see.

It's disappointing to click on the comments for a post and no one (especially the submitter) has told me what I'll learn/experience. And yet, there it was, four hours old, ten points up and no comments. So I give it a skim and it's really good. Now I want others to read it. Spending five or so minutes polishing three sentences is basically free for me and positive sum (unless I do a bad job).

Cynically, tl;dr submission summaries are how I've chosen to feed the beast until it grants me downvoting power.

That's pretty much n-gate summary format :-)
