Well, we could remove (or replace with some different mail from a template
telling the PR was a spam) even the initial mails for the spam/ component
PRs in the archive afterwards.  It is just the txt/ and html files plus
perhaps adjusting the subject, or perhaps just adding one <meta ... >
line to those msg*.html corresponding to spam/ bugs?
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
or so?  Are they ever regenerated or are they just created once and
unmodified ever since?
