Wild stuff from end users like “I can’t reboot my computer” and so forth. The concern with JBS (as I understand it) was that we’d end up with 10’s or 100,000’s of thousands of user accounts, many of which would be one-shot submitters associated with bogus issues.

This is a problem of a huge community, but also can be solved by the
community: if community members can flag those bug reports and a
consensus of, say, 5 community members is sufficient to close the
issue. Just like on StackOverflow.
