I almost did that :)

However, I changed my mind at the last moment, since if I go that way
I  will start ignoring those bugs altogether. Then it will be the time
of the users that is wasted.

A solution is, if I disable abrt for package X, when X crashes the
user will be prompted with a message that he should send this to
upstream. The message should contain the upstream URL, the backtrace,
and tries to convince the user that to provide the steps to reproduce
is essential.

An anonymous database is easy to ignore by packagers. I fear that that
might turn to something as useless as pulseaudio.
