Relevant ML thread here:

It seems that the pkg_flag() function doesn't check to see if a package is already flagged out of date, meaning that a malicious user can merely submit a form with the do_Flag action and generate a ton of phony email to an unsuspecting user. Glancing at the code in master, it seems that this is still the case. This really needs to be patched on 1.9.1 and fixed in master.
This task depends upon
