I'm not encouraging spam. If they tag issues with labels such as "good first issue" they have already done a triage. That's the purpose of the post. Also, when I wrote it nobody was using hacktoberfest to do spam. It was only when that YouTuber released the infamous tutorial on how to spam repos to get a t-shirt.

By the way, the rules have changed. You won't get a t-shirt by spamming anymore. Your PR must be relevant and accepted by the maintainer. Take that into account before opening an PR.
