Quite a few, really. Those are not from bugzilla, however.

This is not the point, though. The original point was that the spam 
robots took too much CPU from the database engine. Against that, either 
require login or start with techniques such as the one I described 
above. Jeremy's point is well taken, though. Putting a non-clickable 
link into the template is easy. Blocking the resulting IPs from getting 
to the database require bugzilla code maintanance, which is more than J 
is willing to do.

Removing the emails from the database (I'm in favour, myself. I suggest 
removing everything but the TLD, so my email for this list would become 
wine-devel at shemesh) would solve the spam harvesting problem as far as 
end users are concerned, but not as far as load on the database is
