I can see your point. Imho, the "problem" is that what you are trying to do would work better on a first person talk (I mean direct conversation) between people that know each other and work on the same group or project. And, of course, we cannot neglect cultural differences.
Speaking a bit more technically now, many people insist in UI and it's own problems (which, admittedly, are too many) but fail to pay attention to the enormous job on the backend of the application. On the management side, I do share your's and strauss's concerns about q&a (or even every kind of human resource) restrictions in this project. But how much of *our* time do we spent for Mozilla ? Many Mozilla.org people (e.g. Gerv) are just volunteers. So, until we can find more time to share for Mozilla, we must keep our criticism low.
Your anonymity is another issue. I suppose you want to avoid potential flames or spamming. Obviously, I can't blame you for this, because I follow the same practice (but you can easily locate my real address in Bugzilla :-))
Thank you for your answer and sorry if I was somewhat rough on you in the past.
