Bug reports regarded as SPAM

Pere Pasqual
Hi,

I'm a bit desperated because lately (the past couple of months or so?) my bug reports to Netbeans are being regarded as "spam".

I've tried a couple of submittions of bug reports, having done it several times before, and to my surprise when I hit the "submit" button a red message appear on next page saying that the report hasn't been sent due to my report being identified as spammy or from an address classified as a source of spam.

To my knowledge, nothing of these two possibilites are true. I've tried to edit the content of my bug report to change any possible words that potentially could be detected as "spam" with no success. Finally, there is an address where you are supposed to report any "false positive" spam detections ([hidden email]) where I have sent a couple of emails complaining about this but without any reply to this moment. This is not fair.

Suscribin to this mailing list is my last resort to try to get some attention. In my previous bug reports I've always tried to follow the guidelines and have always taken notice about the given recommendations when I've done something wrong, in order to try to be useful for the community.

Below is the text of the bug I tried to submit, which is really annoying:

"Most of times, when I'm typing some source and do the .method() part on some object, if I'm quicker than the code completion (which usually happens) and I write it myself without letting the editor have time to even show a suggestion, immediately after I write a parameter between brackets it gets replaced by a ¿random? code completion suggestion, changing my code with some incorrect other.

Sometimes this may get unnoticed if I'm typing quickly and the substitution is not so evident because it's of a similar length or so.

I think I sometimes can "predict" it's going to happen because the mouse cursor is "spinning" ("thinking"), showing it's loading suggestions but it an a rather slow way, while I'm typing my code. If what I'm typing is a .method() part, it's sure it will get replaced by a .randomAnotherMethod() after the spinner stops spinning.

I'm using a 20171017 nightly build, but I'm suffering from this since the Beginning of Times."

HI Pere,

I cant talk as to why bugzilla reports your defects as spam, but with the move to apache, I don't think it's correct to be using the old Nightly builds anymore from netbeans.org.

Also defects should be raised in apache now, if you want to raise a defect, please raise it: https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/NETBEANS.

Finally, there's talk of this mailing list closing, please subscribe to [hidden email] mailing list (subscribe via email to [hidden email] ) or the dev mailing list (replace users with dev)

Regards

John

Don't take it personally. NetBeans bugzilla was invaded in the Summer by a lot of spammers so security has been dialed up to 11.

At the same time everything is moving to Apache, including the issue tracker so you can imagine how your problem might be overlooked.

Just start using JIRA on Apache.
