It could be argued that writing patches to fix a problem is not "wanting
people to fix bugs for you". However, you still go on with all of this
(cf. private mail), and the only sensible reaction for me would be to
never, ever write a bugreport or patch for perl anymore. It is simply
wasted time, and nobody will thank you, to the contrary.

Is it that what you want to achieve? Driving away people that, once,
wanted to help but were accused of trying to?
