Dear Andrew Morton, if the kernel team really wants users to report bugs, you're going to have to create a more encouraging atmosphere. Being greeted with scorn and hostility, or having confirmed bugs sit ignored for months and years tend to motivate users to contribute their energies to friendlier projects. Rewarding bug reports with flames is a definite dis-incentive.
