Using language with that tone is the fastest way to get everyone to ignore your bug, fwiw.
I’d like to echo what Ian Weisser said in his first reply here, specifically:
You CANNOT ‘force’ a developer to do anything at all. They are free. Most are volunteers.
You CAN increase the likelihood of getting a bug fixed by doing the following:
Learn the life cycle of a bug report.
Learn how to Triage a bug report. Bug triage is usually a community task, not a developer task.
Help police the bug reports to keep them on-topic toward Triage, assigned to the correct package, weeding the support requests into Answers, etc.
Remind many LTS users to test if their bug still exists in development release of Ubuntu. Many bugs are fixed but not backported (there’s a policy for this)
Patiently teach users about their systems, about the bug process, and how to do the detective work to reach Triaged.
In other words, Bug Squad.
If a bug is annoying you, you can always scratch your own itch and fix it yourself. That’s how I (and many others started). We can help you with the packaging side of things if you’re willing to put in the effort for the fix.
My point is: just saying “the Ubuntu developers need to fix this” will get you nowhere unless you can actually convince someone to look into it. If you do it yourself, it’s your timeline, and you can spend lots of time on it.
