Your 'Visual Studio Feedback Options ' webpage now says to use MS forums or contact MS support directly for VS2010 bugs:

Just this afternoon I submitted submitted a bug for VS2010 anyway by classifying it as VS2012RC (For all I know it's likely in the RC too).
VS2010 SP1 (and maybe 2012) - Sharing intermediate directory between projects should be forbidden

The problem is where am I *properly* supposed to submit something like that in the MS forums? I checked and I don't see anywhere appropriate to do that. The new way to report looks to make things difficult.

So why can I no longer submit bug reports here for Visual Studio 2010? I can submit them for the Visual Studio 2012 release candidate but that's it. I really don't know if the bugs I'm seeing are in the RC because I'm not using it. Please consider bringing back the ability to submit bug reports on Connect for Visual Studio 2010.

Thanks for checking that out. That seems a lot more chaotic but I'll do it. By 'post-release' does that mean there will be no further service pack for Visual Studio 2010? Help me understand if any bugs myself or others have found or find in the future have any chance of being fixed in Visual Studio 2010.

I reached out to the VS team, and they use Connect for pre-release software. Post release products are supported via forums and MS support. So while there is not a bug submission per se via forums, MS support does review these forums to provide support. You can use Msft traditional support channels - and contact contact MS support directly at http://support.microsoft.com or call 1-800-MICROSOFT.
