Why should I ever bother filing another bug?

Like I said, let the people who actually fix bugs both find them and file 
them. There's no point in anyone else bothering. Triagers won't be necessary, 
saving everyone time, cluttering the tracker with fewer dupes. And, they'll 
always look, according to buglists, as if they were fixed more quickly than 
they really were. Everybody wins, except those who can't fix bugs but would 
like to feel their testing and reporting serves a purpose.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
