If you think in a logical linear fashion, not at all.
A bug isn’t confirmed until Mark receives the email and verifies it’s a bug (or is not.)
The prefix (ie, qualifier) “bug”report@ is technically incorrect because no one knows when submitting it that’s it’s a bug (vs potential) until it’s verified to be as such by Mark.
Someone could think, “I don’t know whether it’s a true bug or user error, or machine/browser error, so I better not use that address.”
(Subsequent silence on this doesn’t indicate agreement with left coast logic. LOL)

At IBM, the response to a bug report where the product didn't perform to user expectations was "Working as Designed," often abbreviated to "WAD."
No matter what you do, you're always going to have that situation.
