On numerous occasions till now, i have found posts (questions to be precise) containing unnecessary baggage at the start.
There is absolutely no need for those passages to be added. Without them being added, the question still remains very much clear and understandable. What it does is just makes the question's body very long.
If i am not wrong, questions here should precise and to the point without giving too much unwanted details.
For, example, if the post is about a Shaivite scholar's quote about Lord Shiva's various forms, then why not simply start the question from there?
Why bother to explain who the Iyers are, for example, and how they are just pseudo-Shaivites or how the word it self (viz-Shaivite) is overused nowadays?
If we keep encountering such posts again and again, can we lodge complaints for their (the unwanted portions') removal? If not, why should they be allowed?
NOTE: If someone suggests "It is not required of you to read everything that's being posted here" then that's not quite a wise suggestion.
Because one may know an answer to the question. And, from the start one can not really decide which part of the question can be avoided without missing anything relevant to the discussion. So, by default, he is being forced to read the whole stuff, however unnecessary he might feel some of it's part to be.
