But adding a link requires going and logging into a separate web site. 
That's really not the part of the normal flow of entering a bug.

Who reads instructions on a separate Wiki page when entering bug 
reports? Just saying your expectations may be set a bit unrealistically 

We have some instructions on Bugzilla's bug submission page (currently 
'Please do not PASTE logs and back traces'). It may make sense to add 
something for the bug links either there or on the page confirming the 
bug was enered. It would have a much better chance of being read there 
than on the Wiki.
