Definitely true for me. Just since joining a little over a month ago, I've 
found several bugs I cared about (amidst the 100+ I didn't or which were 
junk/spam). I doubt I would have known about them nor had inclination to 
check the bug tracker manually often enough to have been any useful in those 

I understand where Tantek is coming from, but I think it's a net-gain the 
way it currently is.

Pardon me if this is a silly/moot question, but is using a spam filter like 
Akismet possible? I use it on my blog and find it's fantastic at filtering 
out spam, and it puts them in moderation queues and emails me to let me know 
I need to check them, etc.
