Why can't I begin with 'no'? Is it just not good practice?

Canejito Did you report it? That's important to do. The more who report, the more likely it will change (I believe).

Wouldn't you need to add 'una' at the end of your sentence?

No, "la otra" by itself can mean "the other one".

"One" is often built in to other words: la otra (the other one), Me gusta ese. (I like that one.) Voy a comprar la roja. (I'm going to buy the red one.) English seems to like the word "one" where it isn't always needed in Spanish.
