hmm, does that really make sense? I am working through, lets say, 20

Let's say 10% answer (more than this time...): 2 bugs are "saved"...
AND I wasted my time...

Current scenario was: 899 bugs were at the status. (The following
argument is also valid for less number of bugs). ~9% responded ~72
bugs. I could check 827 other bugs, like UNCONFIRMED bugs, when I
walked through manually.

I think I have one... We could use the status "pleasetest". Also it
would be politer to set the status to "PLEASETEST" and add something
like "cnb0812" to the whiteboard...
