comment Why is the OED's first reference to *irredentism* as late as 1886?
Not familiar with the history or etymology, but from your description, the fact that none of the affected nations were English-speaking may have something to do with it.

comment Does one open a browser “on” a URL?
@JanusBahsJacquet, you are right that "with" is less common, but it's not nonsensical. Again, just Google search for the exact phrase "open your browser with the URL" and you will see many examples. I'm not saying the number of hits is significant, but the context of most hits indicates that the usage is as above and the writer is generally someone who should know better.

comment What is a word for an employee of a company that deals with community-related matters?
I should have asked, what is the ethical problem having 10 tenants? I can see it being a nightmare for billing, but that is a practical, not ethical, concern.

Unclear about the role, I would have said public relations based on the title...what would this person do about the house with 10 tenants, for example?

comment Can “presently” and “currently” be used interchangeably?
As a native American English speaker, I would not say that it always means "shortly"...in fact, the position rules you laid out seem to match how we interpret the word. Having said that, I would be more likely to use "at the present" in the second sentence if that was what I meant.

comment Use of plural with “respectively” when referring to a property
I want to say the the second sentence for #1 is not correct, but the rest are, but cannot say why.

comment Admits the following description
@FumbleFingers The definitions for admit that have the meaning here ("allow the possibility of") all seem to be intransitive. That would seem to therefore require the "of" or a similar prepositional phrase to specify what they allow...or am I reading too much into the intransitiveness?

comment Young Surveyors Network or Young Surveyor Network?
Or Young Surveyors Network...a network of young surveyors, as opposed to a network belonging to young surveyors.

comment Is there a word/phrase for “unperformant”?
I'm at a loss for the right word for this, but to me, "performant" is a non-absolute? relative? quantifier, like "big", that shouldn't be negated...you don't say "unbig", right? What is the concept I'm thinking of? You can make code more or less performant, but to make it unperformant it would actually have to do damage, I suppose.
