Yeah, if they're really old and aren't reproducing, closing them may be
the right thing to do.

That's the case.  But sending a form letter to the person who opened the

"This bug doesn't reproduce in Emacs 25, so I'm closing the bug report.
Please reopen if you're still seeing the bug."

or something.
