Do you think it makes any sense to send ambiguous observations to the
mailing list which confuse the package maintainer (and me for that
matter)?  Is it really important that we know that "I didn't even know
what it was"?

If zzapper can't respond to an announcement in such a way that the intent
is clear, then I would prefer that no responses should be sent at all.
