You mean reportbug didn't work for you?
In that case I understand your frustration, but that is outside my control.

The "proper" way to report bugs in Debian is the BTS, not a mailing list.
Ask any Debian Developer or Maintainer and they will tell you the same.

Excuse me???

How is filing a proper bug report more work than sending a mail to a user
group? Think about it: By avoiding the bug tracker, you burdened me with
additional work. If you had sent the report to the BTS in the first place, I
could have concentrated on the important bits - i.e. getting a fix quicker to you.

That may be the case, but remember that Debian is a community project, with
all work done by volunteers. If you don't like it, do it better.

I wouldn't go that far - but your behaviour doesn't exactly motivate me to do
anything for you. Perhaps you should indeed find somebody who is willing to
provide better user support to you?
