Yes, people sometimes report first. And some might *not* try to resolve
directly, for various reasons. (Unable to deal with the event calmly;
feeling generally uncomfortable with confrontation; etc.) I sympathize
as I feel uncomfortable with it myself. Going through an intermediary
does run the risk of leaving the offender clueless as to what the actual
problem is, though (I've been there too).
