I don't think this is about abilities. Do you think anyone who can't drive a
car is an idiot? I don't think so. Having said that having a web-based
submission of bugs also won't help if the user interface is badly designed.
So how about putting the design of the interface in the open and let
developers and stakeholders alike to decide which ones should go, which ones
should be in the bug submission form, and which ones should not be there in
the first place?

should I fear that which cannot exist when I do?
