Restoring valid edits[edit]

I am restoring my valid edits which were reverted without any explanation or discussion. Here is why I am restoring them:

  1. "presently" is a word with a disputed meaning. See List_of_English_words_with_disputed_usage#P. As result, it is ambiguous. It is also unnecessary in these instances for the same reason as # 2.
  2. When used with the present tense of a verb, “currently” is almost always unnecessary since the present tense tells us what the current condition is of something. We can just let the present tense of the verb do its job without adding a redundant “currently”.
  3. I have changed the numbers per WP:MOSNUM. If you disagree with Wikipedia style, you can propose changes for consideration by the Wikipedia community at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Dates_and_numbers.
