    The TOC of this article starts with "Change your block list", immediately followed by the subheader "To change your blocklist:" I'll put in a (pending) edit with a new text proposal (and some minors, including markup for the basic and strict protection list).

    I also changed the subheader's "blocklist" to the two-worded "block list", since this is how it shows in the product (although my favorite would be the one-word version). I wonder why two words were chosen for UI, since whitelist and blacklist are also one-word only and I'd like to hear your opinion.

    I agree, we should use "block list" instead of "blocklist" in this article, because that's how it appears in the UI. We use "blocklist" for add-ons, for example, Add-ons that cause stability or security issues are put on a blocklist.

    I approved your edit but we can wait to see what others think before marking it ready to localize.
