To be clear, I'm not advocating not helping others, I'm simply pointing out
the altruistic nature of developers responding to bug reports. The OP makes
it seem like he's doing the developer a big favor by engaging in the
reporting process--when the truth is that his 15 minute bug report
generates hours of work for the developer--that the developer could have
most likely lived his entire life without needing to do otherwise. There's
an underlying sense of entitlement there that is really toxic to any
process of collaboration.
