Omitting needless words.

The Laconic subpages are for brief statements describing the core idea of the page they are attached to.

Synonyms of laconic include concise, succinct, and terse... but not abridged, since that involves removing meaning.

NOTE: "Laconic" does not mean "abridged". Laconic means "terse". Hemingway's Six-Word Story is both unabridged and laconic.
