Shooting down ppl that are willing to test and report bugs is equally as
irresponsible though, and I've been seeing alot of that ... I don't
remember whom it was that did it, but I remember a bunch of PRs closed
recently with the 'big scary warning' as the excuse for ignoring the PRs
... the bugs that the reports revolved around haven't gone away, but
someon felt taht since ppl are warned against using it, that those that do
shouldn't be filling up GNaTs with PRs about it ...
