comment When is meta description still relevant?
As far as I know Google does use meta descriptions but only for top-level pages. For example, a search for Wikipedia shows Wikipedia's tagline as the description. However I am assuming, reddit's result contains a string not used anywhere on the page (but may have once been there?) I would be inclined to guess that when there is no clear match on the matched page (for example, the title matches best) the description is used instead of a context.
