Hm, similar to Google's feedback forms this, just cul de sac: still no mail!
Trying registration again...
For perhaps I wrote incorrect mail address? No. Correct. Anyway...
"Your request is being processed. Please be patient."
Well how f*****g darn patient do they expect me to be?
I've decided: I'm not.
Oh sh**, just as I typed the period above the mail finally arrived. It's been,
let's see, about 20+ minutes!
And still some miles to go.
Somebody should say THANK YOU for all this effort, pointing out not just the bug
but exactly what needs fixing, not whining about me not wasting half an hour on
going through proper channels after already wasting much time on that bug!
