The bug icons in Potlatch 2 are a distraction when editing

The bug icons in Potlatch 2 have serious drawbacks.

The reports are submitted though a semi-private channel, not the well-known OpenStreetBugs mechanism.

Many of the messages are either meaningless (Enter note here...) or one point is not good enough context (The advised route is obviously not the optimal route).

Canned messages may be the same when truncated (The advise...).

Many icons disconcertingly coincide with roads.

I would like to turn these messages off and I believe new users will be less intimidated without them.

A couple more points:

User reports of missing maximum speeds will always have the disadvantage over an internal audit of missing or badly formatted maxspeed tags that they relate to the database as it was when the road was reported and not as it is today.

When there are two reports in the same place an unreadable smudge is displayed.

I think that they've stopped displaying these bugs a while ago. Marking as fixed.
