At last somebody who can make a point in a reasonable way. What happened
was that whilst I was reporting those bugs, it ocurred to me that the whole
thing was ridiculous - if my work is no good here, why is it being accepted?
I agree that it makes no sense to continue to do so.

Agreed - but you guys can't have it both ways either. Either the policy
exists because you genuinely don't want to work with anonymous users, then
don't accept contributions through the backdoor. It makes the policy a
joke.

Bitching and moaning is the result of people acting like jerks to a
legitimate complaint, reasonably made - Linus in this case. If you guys
want a reasonable discussion, act reasonably (like you just have). It just
goes to show that _everybody_ online hides behind their anonymity - unless
you can see someone face to face, you can act how you like. But that seems
to be generally sanctioned here, so I'm getting out of the zoo, problem
solved.
