Mention the wonderful spam filter.

new report. The only time to send mail to the bug list is to create a

Gnus users can add "\\(\\(emacs-pretest-bug\\|bug-gnu-emacs\\)@gnu\\.org\\|\

to message-dont-reply-to-names.
Similarly, RMAIL users can use rmail-dont-reply-to-names. They might
also need to ignore "bug-submit-list@donarmstrong.com" since it
appears in the "Resent-To" header of reports, and for a long time
RMAIL erroneously included this address in replies. Likewise for
"owner@emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com", which can appear in the
"Resent-CC:" header (but it is possible, outside of normal bug
reporting, that you might want to have a dialog with this address).
Gnus users can add the following to message-dont-reply-to-names;
similarly with Rmail and rmail-dont-reply-to-names:
"\\(emacs-pretest-bug\\|bug-gnu-emacs\\)@gnu\\.org\\|\
\\(\\(submit\\|control\\|owner\\)@emacsbugs\\.\\|bug-submit-list@\\)\
donarmstrong\\.com"
The "bug-submit-list@donarmstrong.com" and
"owner@emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com" entries are there because they can
appear in the "Resent-To" and "Resent-CC" headers, respectively. For a
long time Rmail erroneously included these headers in replies. If you
correspond with an Rmail user on a bug, these addresses may end up in
the Cc. Mailing to them does nothing but create duplicates and errors.
(It is possible you might want to have a dialog with the owner
address, outside of normal bug reporting.)
** When reporting a bug, to send a Cc to another address
(e.g. bug-cc-mode@gnu.org), do NOT just use a Cc: header.

Apparently it has some kind of spam filter that sometimes silently
discards valid mails. Adding a subject (pointless in control messages)
may help.
