A good answer was posted, but it included a meta-commentary that is not necessary to be on a post (since Stack Exchange is supposed to be a repository of high-quality questions and answers).
I suggested an edit to remove it, but it was rejected by the OP.
I assume there might be a continuing issue about the site's scope and how each user interprets it. However, this is not my current focus, and ideally, respected users should bring that issue on the meta instead.
Back to the core of the issue,
- Is meta-commentary accepted on a post on this SE?
- If not, how to handle it properly?
