this is undoubtingly true for some bugs and users.

for other bugs (and users) there will be no reply ever and unactionable bugs
clutter the view and harm bug fixing.

so I don't think there is a general rule and I also don't think asking
"does this bug still apply?" is harmful, nor is closing very old bugs
against ancient versions.

Every time you see the word "smart" used to describe a device, replace it with
"surveillance." Surveillance watch. Surveillance streetlights. Surveillance
oven. Surveillance toilet. Surveillance car. Surveillance city. (@mollyali)
