As some of you have pointed out, there was text on the create account
page that said that by creating an account you were giving them
permission to contact you regarding "Novell products and services."

We agree that you should not have to accept advertisements in order to
file bugs.

Thus, we have corrected the situation. When creating your account,
please go to the following URL:


This URL will automatically opt you out of all advertising.

If you've already created an account, we have set you as opt-out already.

Sorry for the confusion,
