I asked Michael to remove the key binding.

It is btw interesting that users sometimes find it useful to state  
that they feel something is a bug. That they need to state this  
probebly means they realize that the issue reported is not a typical  
bug (i.e. it doesn’t crash, misbehave, perform wrong action, etc.).

I am asking in all seriousness, what is the perceived effect of  
including such remark?

(group question, anyone feel free to answer)
