Bugzilla Bug 605 fun fixed


For those who don't know, someone using a challenge response system unknowingly (presumably, since he never got the emails, since they never made it through!) caused 194 comments to be appended to a bug over the course of the past 1 hour, because it decided to reply to a gcc-bugs email.
It also caused 194 messages to gcc-bugs as a result of adding these comments.
So I disabled his bugzilla account, and changed bugzilla_email_append not to append comments from disabled users.


This is also serving as fair warning to anyone using these challenge response systems:
Please either make sure they let through gcc-bugs mail, or aren't stupid enough to respond to the sender of list mails.


I've copied overseers so you guys know this is taken care of.
You may want to hand-remove the 194 messages from the list archives so they don't pollute it, if easily possible.
