BUG: Dismissed hints no longer show reason for dismissal.

I have tried several times to notify FamilySearch that there is a BUG with the website. Previous attempts at notification; my request went to support team instead of engineers. I was told that using "Suggestion" instead of "Problem" will send my report directly to Engineers. Hopefully, this time I am following the correct procedure.

When a hint is dismissed; the user enters a "reason" for this dismissal.
Last year; it was possible to see this reason when reviewing hints that have been dismissed. One of the website updates in late December 2018 removed display of "reason" when reviewing dismissed hints.

Please have a look at
https://www.familysearch.org/tree/per...

You will see:
Research Helps: 0
Dismissed Helps: 1

Click on "Dismissed Helps" and you see that marriage to Joannes Baptista Lenaerts was dismissed; but the reason for dismissal is NOT displayed on the page. Before Christmas 2018; there was a column for "Reason" on this page.
Please FIX this page to show reason for dismissal; like it did last year.

For information can be found in CASE#05396389 and CASE#05363071.

    Firstly, "Welcome" to this "FamilySearch" ( "GetStaisfaction" ) 'Feedback' Forum.

    Secondly, "Official 'FamilySearch' Representatives", do monitor; and, sometimes, participate in, this Forum.

    Thirdly, I am just another User/Patron, just like yourself (and, happen to be a Member of the Church).

    Many Users/Patrons who regularly participate in this Forum who have a great deal of knowledge and experience with "FamilySearch", like to assist/help other Users/Patrons like yourself.

    Finally, this is a known "Fault" / "Flaw" that has been raised in previous posts in this "FamilySearch" ( "GetSatisfaction" ) 'Feedback' Forum.

    Just some examples:

    You are not alone.

    Hopefully, the problem/issue will eventually be be addressed/fixed.
