Reading this question, I noticed that it (likely unintentionally) also may apply to an answer I wrote: I wonder if I'd better remove the second part of it, then.

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?".

I don't think so, you're enhancing the point with a reasonably relevant anecdote. As far as I can tell the meta question in question was targeted at answers that contained tangents that are related to the concept but completely unrelated to the frame of the question.
