A "Where do I...." (of "What do I do when...") section in the FAQ
might help in some cases? (with a link near the bug comment box)

Some suggested sub-questions:
"Have trouble applying a bug"
"Have trouble compiling Wine"
"Have problems with PlayOnLinux"
"Tested an application and it doesn't work"
"MY application crashes"

It might be a good idea to try and get most potential bug reports
discussed on the forum first?

A link to the "patch problems" question one near the attachment list
might work as well.

Regexp searches with "You seem to be doing something bad (see _here_),
are you sure you want to post this comment?" confirmation for dodgy
comments might help pointing users in the right direction in the most
obvious cases.. (and it won't keep comments from being posted by the
persistent/ in case of false positives...)
