At present TBPL only comments on bugs if they were suggested, and the star clicked in the summary box. This means that we have to manually paste the log URL into any bug that doesn't show up in the suggestions. It also means that people looking at such [orange] bugs, don't get to see platform/revision etc without opening the logs manually.

I would like us to:
1) Post the usual TBPLbot comment in any bug mentioned in the star comment, suggested or otherwise.
2) [Optionally] Provide some way of not commenting on the bug for cases where we deliberately do not want to do so (eg a newly filed orange). This could be a checkbox, some string to include in the comment, or else just teaching people that they could use 'bug-123456' to prevent recognition. (Although the latter would presumably break the submission to ES, thus also omit that entry from orangefactor).
At present, there's no way to spam hundreds of thousands of bugs, either.
Ok, fair point, but this is annoying enough I'd be happy to stick this behind some kind of authentication or run the UI locally or whatever it takes.

You know as well as I do, how much time this wastes us every day...
