I agree,

ppl take the time to notify bugs and what you are basically saying is

"we havenot even got around to looking at the bug you submitted, we are  
hoping it may have gone away but just incase there is still a bug in our  
software could you please spend some more time to look at it again ,  
update the bug report and then we will have a smaller list of old bugs  
that we may still not look at. But at least the bug stats will look good.

"If you dont reply within two weeks , we'll ignore the bug anyway and mark  
it as resolved.

"Thanks for your time in supporting our software. "

Maybe not the best approach.
