Then you'll have to get used to people ignoring your bug reports.  Tango is maintained by a core team of about 3 people, all of whom have real lives and real jobs.  They just don't have the time or manpower to collate bug reports from all over the web.

Also, this is a runtime error.  Try throwing _any_ exception and you'll notice that no file or line is given.  In order to know where an exception occurred, either the language has to have some kind of built-in support whereby it will pass the file and line of the 'throw' statement to the exception's constructor (which it doesn't), or you have to have a traceback mechanism (which, by default, does not exist).  Apparently you can get traced exceptions in Tango by using flectioned; I've never used it.

Or use ddbg (a debugger for d) and unwind the stack when the exception is thrown

Even if you filed this as a bug report, it wouldn't be sufficient.  There is no way of reproducing, no way of knowing whether you are throwing this exception in your code, or using another library, etc.  More information about what you are doing is necessary.

I don't think any reasonable software development team is going to take a bug report seriously if you don't take it seriously.  If you would rather not use Tango, then that is a viable option.  If your goal is to use Tango, put in some effort and file a ticket.

Even digitalmars uses a bug reporting system, and their team pretty much doesn't do anything without a bug report there.  The newsgroup is for fleshing out ideas, seeing if someone else knows how to solve a problem, asking if a bug is already known, etc.  It is not a bug reporting mechanism.
