I have to respond to this. 

Actually, many projects disable anonymous bugreports because it is impossible 
to follow up on the problems. 

I manage the bugtracker in MusE, we still allow anonymous reports, but many 
such reports are actually no help. Missing information in the bugreports 
making it impossible to fix, no possible way of knowing if a fix actually 
helped the reporter etc.

I understand the privacy concerns. Also I can understand that you think it's 
unnecessary work. But it cuts both ways. The less you give, the less there is 
for the people on the other end to get.
