I made them as separate bullets so they looked like "more".
(Short explanatory story: In the 90s (pre-internet), Macs used to ship with a dozen or so CDs - an encyclopedia, dictionary, recipes, games, travel info, etc. My understanding of Apple's strategy was that they wanted you to think, "There's so much in here, I'll never be able to use it all. I'm so happy I bought this Mac..." (Of course, no one ever used all the CDs, but I was still glad that I had them, "just in case..."))
The "Reasons to Use LEDE" page is our place for those (virtual) CD's. I do want to overwhelm people with good feelings about LEDE here. We list tons of reasons, even if most people won't use them all. We tell why LEDE's more secure. We talk about lots of packages. We point out all the places you can get help.
Ironically, making the items into paragraphs feels "like less" to me... While the rest of the page is bullet lists, the full paragraphs require reading.
I think it's because your eye can flit around a page, noticing bullet points that strike your fancy. If you see something that is relevant, you think, "Good!" If the next one isn't interesting/understandable, you skip on to the next...
But, when you're first trying to attract someone's attention, you want the message to be easy to digest, so they get hooked. (Or, at least, willing to spend another 60 seconds reading more...)
So... I still say we need to be intellectually honest and truthful, but we also want to help people become engaged. My two cents... Thanks!
