i believe the posts were going to be made regardless.  if i hadn't
shut down the bug temporarily, then it'd have been on there instead.
perhaps after enough time of me saying "no", it'd have come over to
the list anyways.  it's a crap shoot either way.

i'd rather not waste more people's time, but using userrel probably
would have satisfied that desire better than temporarily locking the
bug.
