Praise that someone cannot hear / l'shan hora?
I thought that talking about someone - whether negative OR positive - fell under "l'shan horah" and was not acceptable...??

Only negative or deragatory comments are lashon horah
The word "horah" means evil, or negative. The Torah only forbids speaking about someone in a deragotary way - certainly when not in their presence but even if they are there to hear it. Positive words, on the other hand, are not just acceptable but encouraged!

not sure what online summary means
Really? I had always heard that the issue was that by bringing up another person in the positive, you'd invite ayen harah and thus loshan hara from those who were jealous/envious or just didn't like that person. thus, it was best not to speak about others at all.
