Heh! No, there's no actual person doing this (thankfully), just that
everybody's guilty of it from time to time (even if by accident), so I
was just curious. Being assigned Wally would be cruel and unusual
punishment - but for a third offense most likely just.
I do agree that if somebody does this regularly they can be a danger to
a project. I think that's where being able to keep an eye on the changes
going in via something like RSS is handy.
