We caused bugs to send emails after our experience with SF's original trackers, where people *could* submit anonymously.  Too many of these bugs were things we could not duplicate, needed clarification, or other interaction with the poster or commenters.  We found that those who did not get emailed about a bug only very rarely was later available to provide that further information.

The long and short of it is that anyone posting who does not want or intend to interact with that bug report during its lifecycle is *not* posting with good intentions (with a few exceptions).
