Sorry that wasn't my intention.

If triaging the old bugs doesn't work because no one is doing it, I'd
say it's better to close all bugs that haven't been updated for a year
or so, with a message asking to reopen if the problem is still
present. Of course that's not the normal way we handle bugs, but
leaving 300 bugs open (and most of them unattended) isn't useful.
