they aren't ignored though...as evidenced just a short while ago, Jim
Cornette created a bugzilla entry today and it was already responded to.

There is perception and there is reality. 

The perception is that complaining on this list might actually do some
good. The reality is, your complaints WILL be ignored for the most part
on this list.

The perception is that if you create an RFE on bugzilla, it will be
ignored. The reality is (at the very least, in this one instance), it
was attended to the same day. Mind you that the RFE was stated clearly
and the response offered alternatives that seemed reasonably suitable.
