comment Which commands consisting of a non-letter eat spaces afterwards?
That's for a different reason: the macros have an (undelimited) argument and TeX always disregards spaces when looking for an undelimited argument.

comment Coloredlettrine Error: Did any one have any luck using the coloredlettrine package?
You have to download coloredlettrine.dtx and coloredlettrine.ins from the GitHub site and run TeX on the .ins file, which will create coloredlettrine.sty.

comment Reducing the line spacing of multi-line section headings in memoir
@LoverofStructure You should say \addtolength{\beforesecskip}{-14.4pt}, because the value should be negative. It's a not so well known feature of LaTeX: if that skip is negative, the paragraph after the title will not be indented; in any case LaTeX uses the absolute value of the parameter for the actual spacing. No need to reset the value after \section: you want it to be the same for all sections, don't you? With your \addtolength you reduced the skip to about 4pt, because the normal value is about -18pt.

comment Etiquette for math subscripts and superscripts
You don't want $\operatorname{Hom}_{\scriptscriptstyle 0}(X)$, really; I'm referring to the subscript (Hom should be upright). There's no reason for reducing the size. I use $\{v_1,\dots,v_n\}$ all the time, it's just right as it is.

comment Horizontal space in a new environment after \label{}
@MariusHofert This seems a bug of enumitem. I'd like to help you, but I won't pursue this any more: I firmly believe that (1) the label “Proof” should not be boldface; (2) the label should not be in a line by itself; (3) no proof should be a big enumerate environment.

comment Reduce the number of lines of a paragraph
The keyword to look for is \looseness: for instance tex.stackexchange.com/questions/146890/… and tex.stackexchange.com/questions/168611/…

comment How to generalize a solution with \NewEnviron to \RenewEnviron (error: \env@proof@save@env undefined)
@MariusHofert Besides, what does a \label do there?

comment How to generalize a solution with \NewEnviron to \RenewEnviron (error: \env@proof@save@env undefined)
@MariusHofert Yes, of course. That's because you want a new line after Proof, which you don't want, do you? ;-)

Did you download the package? As far as I know, the package is not on CTAN (so not on MacTeX/TeX Live).

Now \RenewEnviron should become \NewEnviron.

I suggest \let\proof\relax\let\endproof\relax and to remove the useless \providecommand instructions.

comment babel problems: “Unknown option `danish'”
@Christian You're partly right; but the problem is almost surely the same: probably the OP is using a TeX Live distribution packaged for Ubuntu, Fedora or an alike system and the Danish language support hasn't been installed.

comment Detect closing braces with a command
@A.Ellett Yes, that's the place where the brace stripping off takes place. Maybe the documentation of xparse should point this out.

Sorry, you can't do this with xparse only.

@MartinAzpillaga If you use xparse you have expl3 anyway.
