Seems to me that for there to be a *bit* of a barrier might not be a
bad thing...

If "purported bugs" had to be acknowledged before going into the bug
tracker system, that wouldn't seem a bad thing.

That would mean that the frequent "I don't understand what I'm doing
and didn't read the documentation" reports could be quickly triaged
away, which strikes me as an important prerequisite for further
automating things.
