The list of bullet points in the add-on abuse report page require a copy cleanup to fix some grammar errors. The lead-in line and subsequent bullet points should be amended to read as follows (all other page copy is fine; also note this new version does not use the sub copy that appears under many of the current bullet points):

What’s the issue with this extension?

  • It doesn’t work, breaks websites, or slows down Firefox
  • I never wanted it and don’t know how to get rid of it
  • It changed my search engine, homepage, or new tab without informing or asking me
  • It’s hateful, violent, or illegal content
  • It claims to be something it’s not
  • It has damaged my computer, infected other software, or compromised my data
  • It creates spam or inserts unwanted advertising
  • Something else

Does this mean the sub copy should be removed?

Also, some suggestions:

It’s hateful, violent, or illegal content

It contains hateful, violent, or illegal content

It has damaged my computer, infected other software, or compromised my data

Let's leave the infected other software part out. WebExtensions can't do that, unless I am missing something?

It creates spam or inserts unwanted advertising

It contains spam or inserts unwanted advertising

Also, since almost all bullet points are complete sentences, should they end with a fullstop?

Does this mean the sub copy should be removed?

I think Scott meant that the sub copy wasn't being edited.

Also, since almost all bullet points are complete sentences, should they end with a fullstop?

Checkboxes and such don't normally end in punctuation, even when they are sentences. Only related explanations have punctuation. See about:preferences for various examples of this.

+1 on all the other suggestions.

I did intend for all the sub copy to be removed. It's duplicative messaging in many cases, so I think cleaner to remove and consolidate, which I've tried to do here.

Here's a full final version with incorporated edits from Andreas (and to reiterate—we do NOT need any sub copy):

We discussed this on Slack and decided to keep the sub copy. So, this bug is only about updating the copy of the radio buttons, as listed in comment #4.
