Hi Dan,

NEVER assume that if you find a bug, someone else will report it.  If
you assume that, then it is only right to assume everyone else will feel
the same way - the end result being nothing reported and a lot of pizzed
off users seeing the bug in the final release that was known about and
ignored right through the pre-release stages of the product.
