Inconsistency in help tab & small typo

Some texts in the help tab are a bit inconsistent.

In the post help tab, in one sentence we use two different things for "post list".

I also found a string where I felt that in an automatic mail sent when deleting your website/account, a word was missing.

Also, I find it a bit strange that for auto updates we use "Learn more:" in front of the link while all other things in the help tab don't have that.

So, I want to make that a bit more consistent.

I described my changes in the Trac ticket. But the long and short of it is that I was checking some strings for the upcoming 6.1 release in my nl_BE translation and found some odd inconsistent things in the help tabs. With this PR, I want to fix them.

Thanks for the PR!

I'm not sure I like the first change :) The suggested sentence repeats "post list" twice, and it's also "post list" in the first instance and "posts list" in the second:

You can filter the post list by post status using the text links above the posts list to only show posts with that status. The default view is to show all posts.

The original sentence seems easier to read to me, and avoids unnecessary repetition:

You can filter the list of posts by post status using the text links above the posts list to only show posts with that status. The default view is to show all posts.

The other changes look good to me.
