I fail to see the arrogance in that paragraph. That's a simple cause and
effect. If you don't point out an issue, nothing can be done about it.
Simple logic to me. If enough issues are unreported things simply become
unusable. This relates to every sense of community.

Since we're dealing with shared code, most of the issues in Debian occur in
other distro's as well.

Since debian usually holds "older" versions. Frequently a backport fix is
needed to fix the issue. But maintainers need to know abaout the issue

And I didn't read that Phil says you're not allowed to choose differently.
Merley the consequence of the choice not reporting your issue, before
leaving, has future consequences.
