  The important word in the sentence was: _threaten_. Maybe it's a
native/non-native speaking issue, but in french "menacer" is quite a
strong word. "Do answer or foad" is wrong. "please remember that if you
aren't able to follow-up, it's likely that this bug will rot and
eventually be closed because of this lack of follow-up". Or something
smoother that a native-speaker can come up with :)
