why people [well me] don't report bugs Show more
Bug trackers, especially those with more than a few bugs... are extremely overwealming.
When you expect people to not only report bugs, but ALSO do all the bug triage themselves, it literally becomes so overwealming that even trying to report a bug is not worth the effort.
Yes i understand that its hard for devs to wade through many duplicates, but it is often much harder for non-technical, burned out, and disabled people to do that whole process.

When I learned C++ is was still young and gullible enough to assume all the complexity and programmer-hostility had good reasons. I'd have more trouble with that today.
TFW when the #rustlang compiler just refuses your code because lifetimes.
Then you have lunch.
Then you slowly realize that the compiler was right and your code was, in fact, unsound.
And you have no idea how the compiler could have known that BECAUSE IT DOESN'T KNOW THE WHOLE CODE FLOW because there's C in the middle... and yet it knows.
