I don't think we should target developers who don't vote with a WaT query.

Especially if said developer has been active in other ways; uploading 
packages, posting to mailing lists, working in the BTS... or any of the other 
metrics measured by mia-query.

By all means I fully support sending an WaT query to a developer who hasn't 
been active on the multi-criteria, including not voting.

In some societies, voting IS compulsory.

In Debian voting is NOT compulsory, thus we shouldn't target developers who 
don't vote with any sort of request.

That said we should encourage all developers to participate in the vote.

The start of this thread is all about handling of inactive accounts, which I 
also fully support.

Not voting is a poor indication of an inactive account, mia-query is a good 
indication of an inactive account.

WaT queries should be prepared against a good indication of an inactive
