emacs -Q

Hit C-c C-c to send a bug report, then reply "no", perhaps because you
want to change something before submitting the report.

Now try C-c C-c again.

You get an error/message saying:

  message-send: No methods specified to send by

That's presumably because you never got to the part of the dialog where
it asks you how to send the message.

This is a bug.  Just because you used C-c C-c and chose not to send the
message yet is not a reason to no longer give you a means to specify the
"method to send by".

This happens regardless of whether you have changed the "To:" field -
 e.g., in response to this message in *Bug Help*:

  You invoked the command M-x report-emacs-bug,
  but you decided not to mail the bug report to the Emacs maintainers.

  If you want to mail it to someone else instead,
  please insert the proper e-mail address after "To: ",
  and send the mail again using C-c C-c.

And perhaps the message about not having specified a mail method should
be incorporated into *Bug Help*?

It seems that this part of dialoguing with the user (what happens if
s?he says "no") has not been thought through well enough and tested well
