Public response to a bug report is ipso-facto abuse? Since when?

Actually, no. The problem is the unstable release, which is properly
discussed on debian-devel.

Oh please. When there are 5 or 10 more or less identical bug reports,
adding one more is not "contributing to the hiding of the problem". It
just occupies the developer's time, which is better spent *fixing* the
problem, so that the users will have a working system *sooner*.
