Doesn't this also run the risk of making the person look bad?

I guess it depends on how you say it.

"I tried but was unable to resolve this issue via private email."

might be better then:

"I tried contacting XYZ in private but he failed to {respond to my
emails,acknowledge the problem,worship me as his god[1], etc}"

...as the first version doesn't blame XYZ in anyway.

Surely you don't need to provide details what happened?
