As I remember, you report this to owner@bugs.debian.org (or somesuch,
you wanna check that) and they will flush out that spam and fix its
wild changes to the bug status database.

Normally the maintainer would report it upon seeing a SPAM come in to
the bug-closing address... Unless their local SPAM-filter chucks the
message, I guess. :-)
