One thing that Mathematica users could do is to set up a Wiki where
they maintain their own list of known Mathematica bugs. Of course,
this is really what WRI should do, not us. But, here are a few reasons
why it might be an advantage for us to do so:

* In this way Mathematica users would declare their position regarding
the way Mathematica is being developed.

* Individuals and organizations that are considering buying
Mathematica would see that it actually contains lots of bugs and those
bugs don't get fixed. That would discourage them from buying
Mathematica and make WRI to rethink their strategy.

* Mathematica users could check if their bugs are already known
without wasting their time to submit the bug reports.

* It would be easier to monitor which bugs get fixed and which don't.
