If anyone out there is good at handling abuse complaints, or at writing
abuse-handling systems, and is contemplating a career change, please
consider helping out; there's a whole raft of anti-abuse positions that
need filling, and if we can get good people to fill them, they can help
make it less frustrating to get these issues resolved.

Here's a couple of key positions that are in serious need of filling,
and have been open for several months now:
for the whole list of anti-abuse positions that need filling...

Without good people in those roles, it'll be hard for the folks on
lists like this to get the level of responsiveness they're looking
for.  So, if you know people who would be good in these
positions, send them along--the sooner the spots get filled,
and people start cranking, the better we can deal with issues
like this.
