Haha, sure whatever works for you.

All I'm saying is do you expect us to trawl the internet and dig up
problems without any kind of technical detail or debug info attached to
them or do you think we should concentrate on answering and dealing with
problems in a prescribed and constructive way - e.g. via our BTS.

Honestly, give us solid bug reports and we'll attempt to fix the
problems reported, but don't come here spreading FUD and talking
bullshit throwing accusations without backing them up with anything
other than heresay. What I want for Christmas is BUG REPORTS with proper
debug information and trigger cases.

Don't report a bug, don't see a fix... shock of the decade.
