So, if I post a list of 20 odd bugs in some product and claim that these bugs must be fixed with priority (dressed up in 'in order to be better than a popular competitor these bugs must be fixed') /even/ if I present no evidence that the bugs in question are actually important to anyone except me and /even/ if I don't offer any help in fixing them and /even/ if a significant fraction of the bugs have been fixed for months already, that's considered helpful?

I'm not sure I agree.

If anyone actually working on the product has requested wishlists then, by all means, produce them. But I'm having a hard time believing that /anyone/ has managed to miss the fact that some people want all their email in a single folder. Since I'm subscribed to the bug asking for a different default behavior for the 'get all messages' button, I'm pretty sure people contributing code are aware of that issue too.

I will concede that spamming Mozillazine with RFE lists is less irrittaing than doing the same in bugzilla.
