Well, the reality is we have a lot of people screaming me too where it is 
simply not the case. So the six comments they leave behind is anything but 
useful to this report (sure their problems need addressing and they can file 
a new ticket or go to the support ml).

Confirming the bug or providing additional information (log file) is good but 
after the second logfile normally the information does not increase anymore.

If you are willing to help you can monitor the bug. Add yourself to CC, set a 
bookmark and see if more information come by or if there is something to 

And sure we have different kind of bugs. E.g. if you currently experience 
#1597 and have a debug board attached I sure want to know this and want to 
debug on irc/jabber. But these are mostly limited to kernel issues and are 5 
of 2000 bugreports.
