Is it possible to reformat the header of the posts so that it takes less
lines or put the whole header at the end of the posting?

In every post I have to scroll half a page. Not really a problem, but
perhaps this is also annoying for other people?

No, I don't find it annoying. I find it _annoying as hell_. I'm with you. Also, it's almost impossible to find who posted the bug - all you've got is an email address, at the bottom of the header, and that's not always that elucidating. Since Bugzilla requires you to have a nice-looking username, I don't see why that can't be in the header.

The header size doesn't botter me much. But the fact that the submitter name doesn't appear, and one has to decode it from the email, does annoy a bit. That's something that could be improved -- Bruno Medeiros - CS/E student http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?BrunoMedeiros#D

Yes, that is quite annoying after a while

I am probably in the minority on this but I think the digitalmars.D.bugs NG is pretty much useless now. It has become a bugzilla 'spam' repository. Not many posts over there which arent generated from the Bug database. I liked it better when discussions of bugs and such were going on...if I want the Bugzilla info I can get that from the website right? -DavidM

It might be a minority view, but I completely agree.

I agree too. Furthermore, I used my "real" e-mail address in bugzilla, and it's now visible in the (public) bugs newsgroup! It's just a matter of time for a new wave of spam arrives :S L.

I don't agree for the same reasons I prefer a newsgroup to a web forum: I'm on dial-up, so I need a ways of reading these things while offline. Others have the same problem. -- Carlos Santander Bernal
