I think that shifting to the Mozilla 'UNCONFIRMED' -> 'NEW' triage strategy
(as suggested by James Henstridge a number of times) would help in this
regard. It would make an 'introduction to triaging' so much easier, and
hackers would not have to see all of the crazy mess that goes on underneath
until the bug was flagged as 'NEW', signalling that they should care about
it. This could help.
