[openstack-dev] [Fuel] Being spammed by bugs when assigned to whole fuel team

Hi, Mike,

let me post a quote from #launchpad IRC chat:

   bookwar: hi all, is there any permission setting which forbids
subscribing someone to the bug? As i see it, one can easily spam a
group by subscribing it to a certain bug. How we can prevent this?
   mgz: ban the person doing the spamming?
   mgz: launchpad assumes its users are generally sane, but has
recourse if that turns out to not be the case

This quote is about 1.5 year old, but i guess the idea is still the same.

As a possible workaround it should be possible to set main filters to
filter out less common mail headers, for example:

   X-Launchpad-Message-Rationale: Assignee @fuel-dev

See [1] for details.
