If bug reports were really in a good state, I would not see a problem in 
starting in confirmed status. That has worked for a lot of years. But 
the problem is, that in recent weeks I have come across many bug 
reports, which started in confirmed status but are invalid or duplicate. 
Therefor my appeal, to be more careful.

Kind regards
