    Perhaps you should read closer:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97284#c201

    This bug was being spammed beyond all reason. Quoting Brendan Eich:

"Insults about cluelessness from people who spam bugs with advocacy 
comments are a good reason to revoke bugzilla access from those clueless 
people."

...

"However, most of the talented hackers I know dislike bugspam intensely, 
so I'm inclined to close this bug, open another one, and revoke bugzilla 
access from anyone who spams that bug.  How's that for vending a clue, hmm?"

    They haven't closed the issue. They've closed the bug.

    Daniel Glazman says that they need "More contributors, less trollers."

    You may disagree with they way they're handling the spam in this 
bug, but don't misrepresent what's going on here. Mozilla is not opposed 
to addressing this bug. They're just sick of the spam.
