Users who believe such "experts" are usually not good at bug reporting. They would forget to provide important information about their systems, they would be loaded with incorrect assumptions taken from "experts" in "helpful" forums, they would fail to read the documentation, they would trust obsolete posts they find on Google more than the current documentation. And even if they manage report a bug more or less correctly, it would be either a known issue, or something already fixed in the git repository and being on its way to the distros. But it's unlikely such users would bother testing the fix.
In any case, it's unfair to advocate blocking free software just because it has some clueless proponents. Just because, say, KDE has some idiotic fans, it doesn't mean that developers of other software (e.g. gcc, libc) should be actively looking for ways to prevent KDE from compiling or working properly, and it particular blacklist KDE modules by name, as it was done to ndiswrapper.
