comment How do we remove mystical [X] from text? Image included
The cause is most likely that the text was originally copy-pasted from something like a Word Document or elsewhere. There is more than one kind of "space" character in the world, and an extra hidden one in the text could cause what you saw here. Best to type simple text in a simple text editor, and not use big editors like Word to write out posts and such. :)

comment How do I get around “Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons”?
Unfiltered upload will allow users with the Administrator role to upload whatever they like without restrictions, but by default, only administrator roles have that capability. Lesser users don't have that, even if you add that define.

WordPress already knows about the mime type for tiff files. They're allowed by default and there's not anything you need to do to add them at all. If you're getting that message, then probably something else on your system which is specifically disallowing them. Find out what that is, and turn it off.

comment Is MySQL query cache useful for WordPress?
Rolando: I understand what you're saying, but on the most common website, SELECTs are going to be 99% of the queries, no? Every view of the site causes 10-30 selects, and most likely will not cause any inserts or updates or deletes. Changing the database content only happens when somebody creates new content, like a post, or a comment. Reading the content to display it is easily the most common situation. So, would it make sense that a query cache should be used in this most commonplace case?

comment html lang=“” instead of lang=“en-us” - why?
Well, okay then, in that case you need to do some more investigating as to the source of the problem. If WPLANG is empty, then the resulting lang should be "en-US". Something else must be going on to cause this to be incorrect, finding out the cause is where you should focus your efforts.

comment html lang=“” instead of lang=“en-us” - why?
You neglected to say what the WPLANG is actually set to in this site. Is it blank? Empty? An empty space? Also, what plugin do you have that is inserting this Facebook information? What happens if you disable that plugin?

comment Is MySQL query cache useful for WordPress?
Rolando: I see your point here, but in a website situation, where the vast majority of the queries are going to be SELECTs as it reads data from the database and put it on a webpage, would it not almost always make sense to have a decently sized (and enabled) query cache?

comment How to enqueue default scripts with dependency?
Just use wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery-ui-datepicker' ); if it's a core supplied script. You don't need to tell it anything else.

comment wp_trim_words is trimming by character instead of by words
Do you have anything on the site that isn't English in any way? Anything that might have something to do with translations?

comment Pages, aside from admin-side and the home page, read “500 Internal Server Error - nginx/1.1.19”.
They can still give you the error logs, regardless of whether or not it is a managed host. Without looking at the actual error message, you cannot solve the problem.
