The first part just concisely answers the question, while the second one is a longer, relevant anectode. While I think this anectode could be interesting and useful, I'm no longer sure it's the case, and I also fear it could be considered a rant (it isn't intended to be, but that's beside the point).
Would this answer be better removing the second part? Could this second part be good as a question, such as "Is my analysis of this situation correct?".
