That would be sad. Before I was stupid enough to make it public, I
thought of the small pagerank boost we gave companies which used
Bugzilla as a way to say "thankyou".
I don't think this has happened in the past - all the emails I get have
a real ring of genuineness. I think I might start with being deeply
sceptical, and if that doesn't work, we can add rel=nofollow to new ones
or suspect ones.
