Oh I see, nothing to say then, different world view, nevermind :-)

This is the key, even if I find other your arguments presented so far 
incorrect (including the one below), if you don't believe there is harm 
there is nothing to argue.

Yet another red herring IMO. You can still ignore those useless ones, it 
is not hard to spot useless one at first sight (no matter who reported 
it). Also if there is no contact (!= registration, users can add cc, 
bugzilla could request it for anonymous reports) others can fill missing 
bits, with regular bug jar #x mails this is quite likely.
