I'm now getting comments on commits which are really bug reports,
this one:

That's a first.

It isn't for me. Stuff like:

I once received a multi-megabyte dud Pull Request on GitHub by somebody
asking a question instead of sending a mail to an open list mentioned
in the README of that repo, because "Issues" filing was disabled.

Do we have any control over what's allowed on our mirrors, or do we
need to accept this as yet another source of bug reports, like
blog post comments and Twitter/Facebook/Google+ questions?

Pretty much. If there's a comment box, you'll very likely get a
comment that almost looks like a bug report.

At most, you can be clear on where to file bugs, but playing
whack-a-mole with the whole Internet ends in disaster.

Are GitHub issues being filed about those problems?
