Too many vague or un-researched bug reports. People filing bugs instead
of googling the problem or even reading the manual. Lets just go with
the average user might not understand when the right place is the
mailing or stackexchange vs filing a bug. Those other methods of
communication allow true bugs to filter through. It also allows for the
collection of all relevant evidence to make a bug testable or at least
an attempt at it.

It's a signal to noise issue.
