This. I like reading about users learning and figuring out new things, but when those sorts of posts are framed as tutorials, I feel kind of cheated.

100%. Just be honest about it - "I learned this yesterday and here are my thoughts..."

It really depends. Sometimes people actually do make good lists of things that aren't widely known / used, and I do appreciate those

True - to write this kind of list author needs to do a research. But a lot of list articles are just result of 10 minute internet search.

It'd also be cool if giving a bad rating would tell the user to explain their downvote à la "You've downvoted this post. Why not leave a friendly comment explaining what could have been done better?"

Yes. Would be nice
