I'm sorry that my experience with reality does not agree with your
intellectual model of how people behave.  (:->

I have actually done the experiment.
    Buzilla, no email, just a website -> not used
    Roundup, email, and a website -> kaboom! explosive growth of bug reports
and team communications.

Same people, same amount of management emphasis, etc.

I have no reason to feel we ought to tell users that the website is
preferred. You've picked a tool that sets people free, so do not suggest
they wear handcuffs. Let me say it again: the email interface / nosy lists
are what makes Roundup superior.
