No, it's not.  Note that I didn't say, "Email the error codes the
developers personally."  File a /thorough/ bug report on a bug tracker
or developer mailing list, or ask for advice from users, such as here.

You're a fool.  What do you think this magical commercial support does
when confronted with a problem?    They read the source and developer
documentation and solve the problem themselves, or they report a bug
once they have enough information.

Exactly the same thing you could do if you weren't busy whining.
