Comment(by wenzeslaus):

 Leaving as ''wontfix'' but note that there are some people that really
 think that a user should not be scarred by application's messages:

 Messages should be:
  * ...
  * Informative and constructive. Tell the user the reason for a problem
 and help on how to solve the problem.
  * Polite, non-terrifying and non-blaming. Avoid wording that terrifies
 the user ("fatal", "illegal"), blames him for his behavior, and be polite.
