comment Can I use “but” at the beginning of a sentence?
@Kris Why? Did I not "Always be polite and have fun"?

comment Mixing single digit and double digit numbers - how to write formally
Context matters here, also...if the main thrust of your writing is scientific and/or statistical, I would favor use of digits throughout.

comment A word for “mapping existing steps into a larger future plan that commences now”
It means making them a part of the larger plan, assimilating them. If you mean to imply that the existing steps are the bulk of the new plan then maybe "reorganizing" or "restructuring" would work.

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.

comment What is a word for an employee of a company that deals with community-related matters?
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.
