So, participating in the bug tracker is participating in development, and in
every aspect of development, there are standards that must be achieved. This
is not elitism, it's a factor of the high expectations we set for ourselves.

and more reporters see their bugs fixed. Why be the noise? BE THE SIGNAL. :)
