No. That is of zero help.

You have 346 bugs total, including closed bugs. We have 13,300. Don't
you think the scale is just slightly different here? We have 20-30
tasks opened a day, and expecting the original reporter to always
follow up just isn't practical.

Can you please stop this bickering in a public forum unless you have
something that will actually improve things? I've seen nothing here
that is productive yet, and I'm sorry to say my message doesn't add
much more besides hopefully getting you to stop and actually form a
decent solution to...oh yeah, we aren't even sure what the actual
problem is.
