I was under this impression too, but there's no harm in using the
official channels, it is after all why they are there and it ensures
that it is duly noted (similar to filing "bug reports" for various
software distributions v's posting on forums/mailing lists when you
have a problem).

"The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does
not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body
of data." ~ John Tukey (1986), "Sunset salvo". The American
Statistician 40(1).
