The bug-tracker serves it's purpose, but you can't expect everyone to be 
reading it over before making any comment about GIMP. Maybe there are GIMP 
users who would love everyone to drop Photoshop (or whatever) and use GIMP. If 
so, they will have to deal with more of this. Not everyone can spend the time 
to search something out, or in fact they don't care, they would rather voice it 
out right away.

You are perfectly right that it is important to point out weak spots.
The discussions that have been happening on this list lately have
however not pointed out a singleq weak spots that wouldn't have been
well-known already. Bringing up stuff that is already in the
bug-tracker and on the roadmap for years doesn't really help anyone.
