Perhaps so, but sometimes it would be better for those considering
reporting a bug to come to the list and say,

"Here is what I am trying to do. I do this, then this, and this is what
I end up with."

In many cases, we can fix the problem by recommending a more efficient
and better method. At the least we may be able to refine the problem to
understand where the bug is.
