Anonymous issue reporting is super important.

Even seeing how often a given stacktrace shows up gives you some info to 
prioritise work.

I don't agree with forcing users to register to JIRA -- you will just get no 
submissions.

The more barriers we put to superficial user contributions the less we will get.

*Some* people *might* click on the *submit error* button. A much smaller 
percentage will accept using some OpenID login, like using their Google / 
GitHub login. An even smaller percentage will bother to give you their email 
and go through the user creation process.

Also, users will not send you emails telling you why they stopped using 
NetBeans, they will just switch to something else.

So, really, any kind of real-life feedback is gold!
