I'm not going to remark on your style, but please keep in mind that we,
too, have other stuff to do and there's only so much time in a day.  So
I, for one, do not debug or even try to reproduce a problem unless I
have the feeling that the bug reporter has done his or her share to try
to come up with as much information as possible or if I have an
immediate hunch as to what the problem might be.  Other than that I can
spend my time more effectively.
