Description

See https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Discussion:Henry_Danger&curid=11430915&diff=169355395&oldid=169355365&diffmode=source

What happened

The editor wanted the reply to be a bulleted list, so he began his reply with *. (This is common in most votes and some other discussions, including Articles for deletion at the English Wikipedia.) The Reply tool added a superfluous : in front of the bullet list formatting.

What should happen

The Reply tool should have accepted the * and not added any other list formatting.

The rules for replies might need to depend upon whether the reply is the first one being indented.

In this case, a bullet list (*) was added without reason and the editor didn't want it. I don't know is it is the same issue.

Another case reported by @EniPort at hu.wiki:

A recurring problem for me is that when I reply to a message that ends with a list, my new message appears as a new point in the previous list.
