I'm saying you must make sure you can get bug reports from users.
For example, if you occasionally filter a message, but in such a way
that the user can tell that they have been filtered, and in such a way
that it isn't going to be every message from them which gets filtered,
then the user can send a second message saying, "hey, my email got
filtered!" which you will receive. If you then spend the time to
figure out *why* their email got filtered, and fix it so that they can
send the original message and others like it, then I'm fine with it.
