I think you are being a bit provocative here Hadley. Chastisement of
false bug reports occurs with base R functions because it causes
unnecessary work for R-core and also when a bug is reported in a package
as a bug in base R and chastisement is again understandable because it
is incorrect practice.
I think others have come into this debate because they see David has
been responding to Peng Yu's questions quite reasonably considering that
Peng Yu seems unable to do the least bit of self-help. Given the time
Peng Yu has been asking questions he should be able to find his way
around the help system and other documentation by now.
