[cfe-dev] Closing spam bugs has a consequence, be aware

I just went in and bulk-closed a dozen or so of today's spam bugs.
This made me realize that doing so sends an email to the submitter's
address, which allows the submitter to collect valid addresses of
the people who are trying to clean up the mess.

Anyone who wants to help with the cleanup, that's great, but just
be aware of this consequence--you are likely to be (more) targeted
by spammers in the future.
