Are crash reports useful

Dear Jacque,

I don't want to enter into a debate but...
These logs are encrypted:
If I trust Runrev as they trust me *, there is no need to encrypt  
If it's encrypted (as said Mark S.), I'm right to ask me questions ;-)

In addition, I'll add that, AFAIK, only advanced users are able to  
know where these logs are and send them to Runrev:
So why so much secret?

I let you report this thread to Mark W. ;-)

* I could have put anything I wanted in the Rev Search Engine,  
including any url leading to any website.
Of course I never did it: Runrev trusted me and I trust them :-)
