Well looking over the Bugzilla, there is always "someone" 
checking and marking the issues as duplicated right? So there is 
always "someone" handling things anyway.

Now what I'm saying is NOT that "someone" here will have to 
analyze anything, just need to check if it's not a spam or some 
idiocy before the "BOT" collect the issue from the Forum to open 
there in the Bugzilla.

I didn't say it was difficult, but there is a hassle to open 
account that maybe be used only once just to help pointing some 
problem which members over here are requiring to help the

I think you misunderstood me, there is no second place. The forum 
would be a shortcut and the the extra work is just to make sure 
the issue is valid (Not a spam or some kind of joke). I'm pretty 
sure that even in the Bugzilla "someone" need to filter things 
over there.

Again there is no syncing, you open the bug in the Forum and 
"someone" do a glance over it and check if it's not a joke/spam 
and just marked to be created on the Bugzilla.

Interesting enough that you even pointed about the "sync" since 
there is the "Group Issue" where the Bugzilla issues are opened 
here as well, why not have the opposite?
