Firstly, I approved your edit that included the removal of the controversial block of text. I did consider using the Improve Edit option to leave some or all of that block in the answer. On balance, I agreed that it didn't add to the answer. Also, I was well aware that the original poster could reintroduce the block or roll it back if they objected to its ...

(a. Took me some time to find this, as the title didn't relate to me) (b. tl;dr - Short answer to your question here at the end) First off all, I'm very thankful to you (@CJ Dennis) and several other for all the work on improving spelling and grammar of my posts, as I'm neither native English nor careful enough when typing (blaming it on my lousy tablet ...
