For better or worse, the phrase "it is poorly written" is taken by the
people writing such code to reflect upon their person, whereas the phase "it
is a bug" is psychologically neutral.  This may seem silly, but although I
have been known to say that computers run code not egos, software is written
by humans, and humans are not machines.

As for the allegation, is it supposition or fact?  If the latter, you might
have documented it to assist the developers in fixing it.  For what it is
worth, James doesn't even use the class in question.  And this issue
apparently, only happens with Merlin not Phoenix.  AIUI, Stephen later
commented that he thinks it may be a Merlin bug.
