>>Yes, it could have been posted on the mailing list, but:

1. Unlike for Intel, where they have two separate mailing lists, one for bugs
and for discussion, for AMD there is just one combined mailing list which is
used for bugs and for discussion. So the posts in this "bug report" end up on
the same mailing list anyway...

Yes, but if you post to the mailing list you get threaded discussions,
automatic quoting of previous text etc... and you aren't filing a bug ticket
for something that obviously isn't a bug.

>>3. I hate posting directly to mailing lists. Mailing lists are very inconvenient and so yesterday (outdated).

Whereas bug tracking systems are so modern and 21st century ??? 

>>4. I doubt posting on any official AMD forum would have gotten your attention...(?)

Hey, here's an idea... the topic was already being discussed on the Phoronix
forum, which you know the devs visit already... how about discussing it there
and not spamming the bug tracker ?

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
