I encounter this issue regularly -- people have some issue with Emacs
and I say (via email, irc, in person, even): "Well, that sounds like a
bug.  You should report it with M-x report-emacs-bug".  But they don't,
and my impression is that it seems scary.  The report seems to go into
an official secret place or something?

People are used to web-based bug trackers, and those aren't scary,
because people are used to put all kinds of nonsense on the web, while
email is for serious business.
