I do remember on a Charlie Chat a time or two when Charlie would say something and then whomever else was there with him on the show would give him a funny look like a "I wish you hadn't said that in public" look...  so I think Charlie sometimes was guilty of a leak or two that others wished he hadn't announced.

Perhaps you can do your own homework and look through transcripts from the old shows.

Sure, there were "I wish you had not said that" moments ... some were when Charlie said it ... but that does not prove your assertion that bugs and release notes were a regular subject of Charlie Chats or Tech Forums. When a caller brought something up there might be some discussion (similar to current social media "we'll look into it" replies and the constant "I'll pass that request along" response to ANY channel request - someone could request DirecTV's Audience network and I would not be surprised if the request got the "passed along" response). But "hey, we're coming out with S342 and it fixes X, Y and Z." Not common at all. At least, not in the latter years of the program before DISH decided to end the program.

Misquoting someone is poor taste. Why don't we just stick a fork in this?
