I'm sorry to pound on this, I don't want to blame you personally for the
shortcomings of the software, but these reports are next to worthless.

We need to fix the "please report bug to ..." messages so that they refer to some document which says what you said.

By the way, why is there so much spam on this list?

Well, because people post unnecessary bug reports for old software.

Oh, you meant the other stuff.  That's because of GNU policy of not
requiring a subscription for posts to bug lists.  No, it does not help
to discuss this on this list.  I think there are special GNU discussion
lists for the mailing list handling, where the people listen that can
change this.

There is a new form of spam. Let's call it anti-spam. Anti-spam is generated by mailing list managers which bounce "moderator" messages to the "sender" so that a claimed sending address receives hundreds of messages regarding emails he never sent. Unfortunately, spam is easier to filter out than anti-spam.
