    @LemmyX I wouldn't be at all surprised, but I couldn't find it either. – Matt Samuel Jun 17 at 23:30
  • Me neither, although there's this question about close votes. And this very old report from mobile. – Mast Jun 18 at 6:13

    I don't see anything related to the question in the screenshot. Where you see that text? Also, I don't like your tone which is arrogant and not friendly towards SE developers. -2 if I could. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jun 18 at 6:23

    @Shadow see the image of the tooltip. (FWIW, the question seems innocuous to me, not like it’s aimed against the SE devs. Maybe if you read the question as rhetorical, then it will appear rude.) – Brahadeesh Jun 18 at 7:07

    @Shadow The question was not intended to be sarcastic. I realize that it might be difficult to fix this and wanted to know if that were the case. – Matt Samuel Jun 18 at 9:37
  • @Matt "Is it difficult to use correct grammar", for me at least, came as "You have wrong grammar, and since it's easy to fix it's a stupid bug". I mean, of course it's not "difficult", so why sting? Anyway, someone else changed it, and I made the report itself more clear. All good now. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jun 18 at 10:43
  • @ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Not having punctuation in alt text causes run on sentences for screen readers. (I'd also argue that you don't needed the alt text at all now that you've added the transcription of the relevant text.) – BSMP Jun 18 at 17:47
  • @BSMP not sure what you mean. Alt text should be a short description what the image is about, not whole paragraph. Anyway, feel free to edit the post. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jun 19 at 13:11

Even though there's no official response, I'm answering because it seems this has been fixed: enter image description here
