An issue can be 'retired' using an administrative tool on the tracker
machine. I'm signed up to be the person who does this. While I check for
spam periodically it is always good to be told about some.

The metadata can be reversed because the log tells what the changes were.
Again, I will take care of this.

I'll have to change the password on the offending account and see if I can
contact the owner.
