         It's very nice that you spelled out the steps, but
you're not getting it. We can't make ordinary mappers go
through those steps just to submit a problem report.
They need a link to a single page that has the words
"Problem Report" at the top. They fill in the blanks and
hit "Submit."
         Otherwise, we'll lose them. They'll just give up, and
we'll never know what issues are happening.
