@Bernard Stafford Please don't hijack this question; post your own.

OK

I've removed the spam comments.

We don't currently have a way to "lock" old questions/bugs. I think that would be a good thing to have, but it's not something we could do as part of support tickets like this, so please don't keep bringing it up in support tickets: support tickets are for short-term administrative changes that don't require code changes, while bug reports are the proper venue for things where we'd need to change the Launchpad codebase.

In this case, https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/73122 seems relevant.

Thanks Colin Watson, that solved my question.

Looks like I'm already subscribed to #73122 since, uh, I guess maybe 2008 (-:
