What the fuck?  Why does being a DD or a bug submitter mean that you must be
continually bombarded with spam, because Debian fails to take the least of
precautions or spam prevention for fear of inconveniencing a few people?

I'm getting so much spam through my debian account that I'm already
considering closing it down.  We must now tolerate spammers closing bugs?

There are a lot of large projects, including the mozilla project, that
require addresses to be registered with a password just to submit a bug.
This is the model we should be moving toward.  The current situation is
totally unacceptable.
