Sure, I agree with this - people can check the issue tracker for free
and should do so before posting here.

Github is the platform you chose despite the warnings, so you should
accept the consequences of that choice instead of rebuking.  One of
the conequences, which was warned about, is that some users and
non-core developers are reporting issues on the surviving open
platforms like the list and forums.

No, they're not.  In short, there's a big thumbs-down for having to
write github a blank cheque indemnity and the information point about
having to provide one's legal full name should be a thumbs-down too.

But we already know we disagree about this: you've agreed to github
and others have not.  Please continue using Github if you like, but if
you want to make it easier for us developers and users, please accept
other reports and patches nicely.
