Proper forum?

Is this really the proper forum to complain about a RELEASE CANIDATE?

Please go to bugzilla ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ ) search for your issue if it exists and you have something useful to add, comment, if it doesn't exist create a new bug providing as much helpful info as possible.

All the problems I've had, have already had filings in Bugzilla.
And nothing ever happened.
So, why shouldn't I complain about it all on other forums? Complain about the problems so that they actually get exposed to more people than the few that actually bothers to read the Bugzilla.
All in all, if they can't even get things like this properly done, why should I believe even for a nanosecond that they can get anything else correct?

I think the other post did explicitly mention that

"(I realize this isn't a bug/support forum, just thought I'd share)"

and I think its perfectly acceptable to discuss some initial impressions of a product in this forum. We are a community here and I like hearing other people's opinions about different types of software (Especailly if they are doing it in a civil fashion - not whining etc.).

Your point about posting on bugzilla is a valid one, but I still believe that this forum is also a proper venue to voice opinions about software.
