If a publis bugreport is abusive, so is a response, QED.

Are YOU going to go through and do the redirects?  Face it, since
sometime in the area of hamm or slink, the average user is more likely to
use unstable since the widgets that most people think necessary from the
last year or so aren't in stable.  Users naturally ask their questions on
-user.  This means that to reach the majority of unstable users, one must
at least keep -user in the loop.

reportbugs deals with this.  My question still stands as to why it isn't
the standard...
