I said UNCONFIRMED, not every bug. They stey moastly unconfirmed because
no one was able to reproduce it.  And so it was maybe a crapt system or
so. I normaly short read the bug, and than deside to close ore not.
Sametimes there are also comments like "please add more informations",
or samething like that. If there is no answare I close the bug often
with a comment like "We missing the addidional informations, so I wil
close the bug now. feel free to reopen it or create a new one."

Confirmed bugs you should handle much more carefull, because they are
moastly valid issues.
