We are discussing about a simplified method for a newbie to submit some
report... How did this escalate to hardcore developers? Hardcore developers
should subscribe to Bugzilla the standard way :)
This is about a *user* friendly email verification for first users.

Yes, I know the method is different. 
I never imagined that validating an email address would be such a problem...

That is obviously better than having the login as the first step and if it
is clear that it is a requirement then it allows the user to choose if he
wants to continue.

I just realized that once logged to BSA I can't log out :)

BSA is a BIG improvement over Bugzilla but it is still too technical...
Isn't it much nicer "LibreOffice version you were using" instead of "Version
the bug appeared"?

My 2 cents ;)
