Sometimes, yes. You can look for FDev employee posts here:
This thread is announcing that bugs should be reported to the (at the time new) issue tracker so expecting responses here is probably counterproductive.
You could try posting in the most recent patch thread, or just read through them to see if others are having similar issues.
I get Mauve Adder reliably if I am travelling in a friend's ship & they jump to supercruise, if they are in my ship it's fine for both of us so I assume some issue with them hosting the instance. There's a fan-made thread with tips on port forwarding stickied in Dangerous Discussion that could give you some suggestions for workarounds.
New issue tracker, as I said, is a joke with 'expired' issues that are still a problem, 'fixed' that most certainly are not and 'confirming' issues that have at least six replies confirming the same problem. (Mauve adder issues abound in the new issue tracker, 145 at last count some dating back to update 2 and earlier: At least one is reported as 'fixed', many as duplicates and several 'expired' or 'confirming' even some marked a 'invalid'??) It seems that only issues that developers consider relevant are even looked at let alone investigated. As you say expecting a response here isn't productive but showing frustration at the terrible mess 'Odyssey' still is certainly has a place on the forum and considering just how many players do just that should be an indication that Frontier have a player base that is less than happy with their idea of a final release.
