I am not a fan at all for pinging unconfirmed bugs . . . already too 
many people leave comments like "please confirm on x.x.x.x - for a user 
to continue to be testing their own bugs when QA hasn't touched them 
beyond asking them to continue testing is just a good way to annoy the 
hell out of users. 100 days is also very short time frame (183 bugs is 
nearly 25% of our total count).

I am much more a fan of this.
