Don't make statements like that.  They aren't helpful in any manner.
You cannot claim that they are intentionally ignoring them.  Hitting
people with the "update your bugs" cluebat that have a massive amount of
bugs simply does not work and does not help solve the problem.

If a lot of 1) bugs are already solved, anyone within the 'fedorabugs'
group can act as a proxy to close them out.  Team effort would be a very
good thing I think.
