I don't know whether this had been discussed already - but I think
Bugzilla itself may be the tool to do the moderation (unconfirmed -->
confirmed). But then it'll be helpful to identify where the bug came
from ... maybe adding a keyword like "BugFromSimpleBugForm" that enables
filtering? E.g. for letting QA focus on such issues, or even doing some
statistics (e.g. how many of these bugs turned into "duplicates"). Last
year, I've attended a very nice research talk that dealed with Mozilla
bug reports and their reporters.

Just by 2 cents. Thank you both for working on that!
