Also, having a clearly documented procedure like this would make it
much easier to get troublesome behaviour escalated. Because
(a) rather than being one complaint from an individual it would be
reporting a systematic problem affecting more people and
(b) complaints would have Debian's weight behind them.
Having said that I have no problem ignoring such things. The total
number of emails is low enough that just deleting them works for me.
(But maybe I'm not popular enough with the recuiters...)
