It's true that I don't always manage to read every ticket and every 
comment on every ticket. The beauty of working in a team is that as a 
group, we do manage it. And, a gentle ping on IRC or in email is all it 
takes if I've missed one that needs my attention.

Hmmm... the only message I ever sent you off list was:

Which is still true. It's not about whether you raise an issue, we like 
bug reports, they lead to better code. But *how* you raise it can make 
things more or less pleasant for the rest of the team.
