Expecting software designers to cater for bugs that haven't even been reported is pretty unreasonable.
True, but then ikm never said he expects software designers to address these bugs.
I don't report bugs. The probably of the report resulting in a fix is too small to justify my time. I just accept my loss and look for the next best alternative.
I'm cognizant of the fact that if the bug affects only me, there's a vanishing chance that some developer working for free will be interested in fixing it, and if it affects a lot of people, someone else will have reported it or, better yet, some developer with the means to fix it will have experienced it himself.
