Definetly. However, the question doesn't exclude someone saying that
they don't feel that they're the proper person to be dealing with this
specific problem, or that the problem is one that is not serious
enough to merit spending the time necessary to address it.

I'm just concerned about the disingenuous way in which some problems
are addressed in Debian, where people who aren't interested in putting
in the effort to solve the problem heckle those who are attempting to
do so, and some of the responses to this issue seemed to be heading
this way.
