This is demeaning!

Why on earth should I care and report bugs, if nobody is going even to read


This was me closing them... no problem to state it.

Do you in all honesty expect a maintenance update for fixing a bug in
11.2? No? Good.. the we agree on that.

The text also clearly stated: If you still see this happen on 12.2 (or
even 12.1) please report it back, and hopefully resources allow to
tackle it this time.

Would you have preferred the alternative of not touching the bugs as all
and keep them open? If so, please tell me and I'll do that... It will
not make a difference AT ALL, promise.

Still, I repeat it again: IF the problem is still there in a maintained
version, feel free to open a bug. If the problem is 'minor' in 11.4 and
fixed in 12.1, then there is predictably few chance to release a
maintenance update.. unless somebody steps up and actually DOES do the
work for this.
