Are we trying to package software or testing how motivated our users are?
Why make things harder *intentionally*?

As a small-time maintainer I love that it's easy to tell me when my packages
have problems. Reporting a problem is not this bizarre test of motivation: "he
is not motivated enough so I don't want his comments", it's just everyday
And yes, deleting comments is useful because after the problem is fixed
it'just takes space.
A *very* simple bug tracker may do, too.
