comment Past tense usage in a formal email
This smacks of trying to sound formal. "Changes have been brought to my resume"? Passive voice is not only weaker, but now your resume is some regal document with servants bringing it changes?

comment How to specify the letter O, not a zero
If you're writing a question or answer it is the "Preformatted text" button (looks like { } ). Or you can just indent the line 4 spaces. To make some inline c0d3 surround the text with backticks (``).

comment Meaning of “Subject to” in context
It's the same definition as the other question you linked. Just like computers are subject to change, video compressors are subject to diverse requirement(s). I believe the S missing in requirements is an error, which may have made parsing it more confusing.

comment Why a u-turn instead of an “n-turn”?
It's in the shape of a "U" from your perspective AFTER you finish the turn.

comment phrases: “marry a guy and he'll provide”
Sugar daddy has nothing to do with marriage, however. In fact the sugar daddy is often already married to someone else.

comment Use of the word or in place of commas
I get the impression that this is a legal question rather than a linguistic one. I doubt that a 25 year old is going to get get out of a lease by quitting a job and declaring to the lessor that they are "retiring", only to get a new job next month.

If you give away a group of ferrets, what do you call them? None of your business.

comment Nice way to say “exclude”
@ElliottFrisch has a good point here. There is no way to sugar coat it when you're picking winners and losers. The best method I can think of (assuming this is a "PowerPoint" type presentation) is to first display all the baselines considered, and then in a second slide, display "Chosen Baselines".
