In the footer of every page there is a "contact us"
link.  That loads this page:

Notice that user, unless they are standing on their heads and reading
from the bottom of the page up, must ignore the advice for support
questions, ignore the advice for reporting bugs, ignore the note that
says that the following instructions are *not* for user support, and
then click the link that clearly says it is for reporting website

I'm at a loss at how it happens that users reach that point.
