Yeah, some of us have pointed out that before.

I'm happy about every detailed backtrace I get, but I would be even more
happy if users contributed a tiny bit more and added comments to their
tickets and responded to NEEDINFO queries and gave feedback on Test
Updates.  ABRT has lowered the hurdle so much that people dump generated
reports into bugzilla but otherwise they appear like /dev/null and only
show rarely that they care about a package.
