Interesting. Someone/something (word filter?) has to read it though :)

I agree that anonymous bug reports are of little use (and invites spammers).
But providing a valid email should be enough for all that. It should not be
required to create an account.

In addition the Bugzilla form is for geeks. I am allowed to say that because
I have used it extensively and for a long time.

Even BSA is NOT user friendly. People from UX should test it and improve it.
Starting with removing the registration step. Just ask for a valid email.

My 2 cents.
