Unfortuntely wit and sarcasm get lost in translation and without fail
are misconstrued by someone who is hell bent on being offended...even
when people go out of their way to throw in winky-eyed ascii emoticons
to set off statements meant in jest.  If you honestly missed the fact
that mharris's emoticon laden post concerning bugzilla was meant in
jest then there is a significant gap in communication which you'll
need to attend to. You also might want to revisit any assumptions you
have about his sanity.

I'm a sarcastic bastard and I don't even bother with the emoticons so
my humor is an egregious example of potential miscommunication. Some
could argue I choose a writing style delibrately designed to cause as
much confusion as possible, and I'd be hardpressed to disagree
sometimes.

(Ir)Regardless of the intention, quality or style of someone's
comments, communication is helped immensely if other list particiants
would apply a simple sanity check to what they read. If what you read
seems unreasonable or just plain wacko, its best to ask the original
poster to clarify instead of assuming your intepretation of what they
wrote is in fact what they meant...instead of a joke.

That being said closing all nvidia bugreports as IS_FEATURE makes
perfect sense to me.
