Friendlier way to use FogBugz to discuss
One thing I like about FogBugz is it provides a nice audit trail for discussion about bug & features. Knowing why you arrive at a design decision is very important. In that discussion, you get much more insight to the design than a generic description.
The way we do it is by assigning the task to the sender and typing in our comments. The exchange goes back and forth until there is consensus. The only change I'd like to have is to make it easier to "Reply" to the forwarder. It's a pain to use the Assign feature to "Reply". This is really a minor UI issue but we use it in this manner so frequently that I think it's an important issue. It is more of a pain for projects with large teams (big drop-down) than for smaller projects.
