Hi,

I see you filed this:

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18631

Your behavior is not good etiquette. Every update you make to a bug sends  
an email to many people. For this reason, you should try hard to minimize  
the number of changes you make. If you make lots of changes and comments,  
people are likely to just put your bugs in their spam box, which I guess  
is contrary to what you want. It is not necessary to fiddle with every  
field or add dozens of comments. What is important when filing a bug is a  
clear problem description and use cases.

Thanks,
