1) It's impossible to hide a trac ticket.

2) The comment asks you to send any valid additions to the mailing list.

3) The comment links to a ticket that has much more eloquent, and  
polite, comments regarding this subject. That ticket is wontfix'ed.  
Your ticket is invalid because you failed to comment in the previous  
ticket. The closure code is correct, the only thing that it could  
change to is duplicate.

This is how ticket systems work.
