Why should I ever bother filing another bug?

The words I used are not inherently unpleasant, only unpleasant because 
people don't want to hear the truth they report. Testers who can't fix bugs 
are treated like lepers compared to those who provide patches, deserving of 
less than equal respect. As a Bugzilla user for a decade or so, I understand 
this very well. It's a constant battle to remember to spend enough time 
rereading before sending in order to prevent inappropriate language to 
escape, particularly as given so little respect in the whole test and bug 
process overall (e.g. not only the duping of good older bugs to newer bugs, 
but Bugzilla itself: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638726 ).

As the subject says, I see no point in further bother.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
