The Chat Gem Lives!

Hi, I've been wondering about this for a long time-- what is "The Chat Gem Lives!"? Is it a clan channel or something?

Haha, it's just a quote, ;).
The Chat Gem Lives!
This is something I've been wondering for a while now. I like to tell people to search before posting, so that there aren't 5 threads on the first page about the same thing, but how old of a thread should people post on? Some forums don't like people posting on threads older than 3 months, but what if it's the exact same issue?
So I need to read through all that just to report a bug? Who wants to read a super long essay?

We were reading ally chats from our opponents today, it was so weird, and last night I just beat a cheese to bad manner zerg, however in his match history there are obviously something wrong.

I wanted to send the replay and screenshots but I don't want to go through the essay.
It's just a rough guide for people who post stuff like "HUGE BUGZ" and say "y wont my guy mine minerlz????"
If you describe the bug, and link to a replay and say when it occurs that'll be fine. It'd be a good idea to search first though, it's very possible that it has already been posted by someone else.

It is so strange that on top right corner of replays there is no "report bug" option. is not working or I don't understand where to upload the replay.
