I'm guilty twice. First I'm the guy who absent mindedly forgot
to enter the name and subject. And I'm the guy who wrote the
perl script with the bug in it. That bug has since been fixed.
The message you are missing is the one that is under the
"More Specifics" subject just above it. (When I realized I had
forgotten the subject, I hit the browser's back button, typed
in the missing fields, and hit submit again.
