You are saying nothing that most of us already know.  As I stated -- it 
doesn't matter about reality.  The only thing that matters here is 
perception.  I know thats a hard sell.

Lofty goal.  Won't change the world though.

Other people have already outlined their reasoning on this list.  Those 
reasons sound pretty logical to me, and I am not about to argue with 
their _perception_.  And, you logic flips on its end as well... if 
there is no difference in filing bugs in bugzilla vs. gotdotnet, and so 
many people seem to dislike gotdotnet, why not just use bugzilla (or 
something else...)?
