There is always the potential danger that a newsgroup message gets
ignored, and the poster gets the impression that nobody cares about
the (potentially significant) problem.

In these cases, it is a good idea to submit a bug report, because the
tracking involved in the SF bug database guarantees that the report
stays open until it has been considered.

Of course, bug reports are only the right thing if the poster feels
that Python behaves "bad", where "bad" means either incorrect,
non-intuitive, or in an otherwise undesirable way. For a bug report,
one should also research whether this is a well-known issue.
