Well, I know "due process"  I followed it several times and I also point it everywhere I can, however in this occasion we have the case: 
Hey, I got a problem, what should I do to get the info needed to file a proper ticket, 
and: Is this feature supported in the OS or not?
Thus the questions. 
Answering outside a ticket should not be "unthinkable", so if you have an answer I would be grateful.

The bigger issue however is who has the greatest interest to produce a better build, the casual user that sees something strange and even mentions it somewhere or the developer?
Dismissing/ignoring real issues because they are "inappropriate formulated" can only turn around and bite you in more than one ways, I believe.
