If you're concerned that the existence of this particular bugzilla issue is
somehow an attempt to suggest that such advice is useless, I think you can rest
assured that it is not. As far as I can see at least, the context isn't at all
about what whether such advice is useful; the context instead is general
agreement that such advice is in fact very useful, but with disagreement about
what the specific nature and scope of that advice should be -- with some
(arguably lame) attempts at humor (not ridicule) thrown in.
