"The three chief virtues of a programmer are: Laziness, Impatience and Hubris." - Larry Wall

Laziness: I'm too lazy to do the same task repeatedly so write scripts to do that task for me. This makes people think I am intelligent.

Impatience: I'm too impatient to wait for my code to run so rewrite the code to improve performance. This makes people think I am a good programmer.

Hubris: When someone asks if I can do something I just say Yes, then go find out how to do it (Google!). This makes people think I can do anything.

Ultimately, it means I can make a career out of being Lazy, Impatient, and Hubristic(?).

comment Should “Yes, delete it” be red, or green?
Green = Go, Red = No. That's the standard I see in most places where Red/Green is used, and is what I would go with here. Green = continue, Red = go back :)

One more attempt to make this on-topic. Can remove the example paragraph too if you think the examples make this too localized

comment Does it make sense to combine Contact settings with company contact info?
It's a debt collections industry.... they frequently contact the wrong people, or contact them more than they'd prefer or at the wrong time. Frequently the Contact Us comments they get are to stop calling, so I was thinking that putting it on the same page would make users aware that option is available when they go to contact the company.

comment Does it make sense to combine Contact settings with company contact info?
I'd definitely want to make the sections expandable/collapsible, however I think I prefer them to be together if it makes sense to do so, because often users don't think of companies contacting them, and if they're simply looking for the Contact Us link then I'd like them to know that option is available.
