Devil's advocate: Why should you expect volunteers to do things that are
out of their speciality / experience just because someone reported a bug.

One of the most depressing things about being a volunteer is when you have
expended time and effort only to be told that you've done it wrong or
could/should do a much better job.
Would it really be better if no one did this voluntary work, so that there
was no one to blame?
