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.
