I can't believe I'm reading this.

You should not write options you are not going to rank first, because
the people who do care about that option winning should get to decide
what's the wording that reflects their complete opinion and concerns.

(On the other hand, I think seconding is different, and that it should
be okay to second stuff even just because "I think it's good for it to
be on the ballot".)
