Another bug-reporting system that requires casual users to have an account. While I already have a Google account, if I needed to get one to report a bug or request a feature, I wouldn't. That's one reason why I've never filed a bug report against Firefox or Thunderbird. Telling users that they have to go through the effort of getting another account and remembering another password to tell you that your program has a bug is arrogant. To me, it's equivalent to saying, "We don't want feedback from our users." I'd much rather see a challenge-response system, if a project really has an issue with spam-by-bug-report.
