Another possibility is it was closed by spam and the spam was deleted.
Hopefully either the maintainer or the submitter will notice before it
is archived and either reopen the bug or let owner@bugs know about the
problem.  (Both is best.)

I've done some major cleaning sessions deleting hudreds of spams from
the BTS, and don't usually check which address was spammed.

The changes and tuning I've done to the BTS seem to have gotten the
amount of spam caught by the filters up to over 99.9%.  (It was around
99% when I started.)  That means a dozen or two spams get through
every day, out of the 30-50,000 we get.  (700-1000 real messages.)
More changes are planned, but involve rewriting some of the BTS
processing code.

As usual, let owner@bugs know if you find spam in a bug.  Most of the
current crop gets caught when I check the boarderline messages.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
