You honestly think that a report on an old version of the software
posted to the developers list by someone who didn't read the existing
documentation is a "good report"?

Really? Maybe I should start posting usability reviews of rocket design
software. After all I have no clue how it works and I'm sure they
should jump to implement my suggestions.

There's a huge difference between usability testing and Joe random

weight but he didn't even read the documentation.
