Error reporting dialog

I've probably filed hundreds of exceptions, I have never once chosen "Yes" when
IDEA asked me to view the created issue on the Tracker. I think this dialog
should be removed. I think it annoys the user for having done the nice thing of
reporting the bug, instead of thanking him or her for taking the time to do it.

Do you ever click "Yes"? Do you think this dialog annoys you?

I sometimes click Yes, because I know I might want to add some more
information when I've closed the error dialog (to say whether the
exception occurs again after having restarted IDEA, for example).

I always click "Yes". I like to see if my report arrived correctly and
if other people submitted the same. If a good way to reproduce is
already submitted by somebody else I don't need to put in the effort. If
not, I add a comment with steps to reproduce if I know any. I guess this
means I don't need the choice either. The dialog doesn't annoy me
however, although it could be improved.
