The point stands: he spent some time to work on this, with 5 more minutes he could have achieved a lot more: give trackability to the bug, give the "customer" a sense that the vendor cares. None of my former employers would ever dream ignoring a client like that, even if bugs would linger for 10 years.

As for the "entitlement" jibe, I guess the only response to that kind of narrow-minded thinking is for everyone to not bother reporting bugs at all and to just use something else instead. Yes, users can withdraw value from the interaction, too.
