What good is it trying to attract "testers" who refuse to work with things
that aren't perfect?   We need people who are interested in helping
resolve problems.   Not people who are so afraid of bugs that they
are incapable of helping.   FC2 is working very well for many people.
And many other people are helping resolve the issues that do exist.
