Some edit summary fragments - Edit Overflow v. 1.1.49a3 2019-11-28T193537

Meta information does not belong in a question

Inappropriate shortening of "IP address"

Capitalisation often obscures the meaning when proper nouns are involved

Code formatting should not be used for emphasis.

Statements like "the above" may make sense on a forum, but definitely not on Stack Exchange.

Unfortunately, Stack Exchange does not warn when text is enclosed in "<>". It is just ignored and becomes invisible without warning.

"its" vs. "it's"

Things like "Update", etc. does not belong in the main post (question or answer). A post's current version should be the best possible and there isn't any need to know how it changed over time - this information should be in edit summaries and in the revision history (in some cases, and/or in comments), but definitely not in the main post. Remember, 99% of the users for a post comes from a Google search, and they have no interest whatsoever how a post changed over time - they just need the best content (besides, it is ugly to have "Update" in a post).

The "How to ... ?" form for a question is not a good one (does not follow QUASM)
