All the more reason to make it obvious which reviews are not being
addressed in a timely fashion. (I'm thinking something akin to the
order screen at a fast food restaurant that starts blinking in red and
beeping if an order hasn't been filled in a certain amount of time.)
Perhaps by making it clear that reviews are a bottleneck this will
actually help to address the problem.
