It's part of being human that we don't make sense -- just because we are 
capable of intelligence and sense, and leaving well enough alone, doesn't 
mean we will.

Like I said, we should put in plain site on the web site that we are willing 
to help resolve issues, along with IRC and mailing list logs and link to the 
bug tracker. That way, people who don't put forth the time and effort to work 
with us to resolve their issues will look like the idiots, and anybody with 
even a small amount of sense will see that and realize that the people who 
are bashing us don't know what they're talking about.
