If you're going to continue to present opinion as fact in this manner,
then please take it to email. There's enough traffic on this list already
without the need for cheap shots.

Yes, _useful_ feedback, not wishy washy statements along the lines of
"something's broken, it's your fault". If you can't at least follow the
basic issue reporting guidelines in the documentation, then I for one
would rather not have the feedback at all. If it's a big enough issue,
it's likely someone else (who can be bothered to follow the guidelines,
at least to some extent) will point it out.

Wasting my time by nitpicking over trivial issues and not clarifying your
statements when asked is hardly a good example of that. Nor is your
continued inability to submit a sensible bug report. As for what
constitutes a good bug report, I can't put it more concisely than the
guidelines included in the documentation. Here's a direct link, if you're
unable to find them:
