I can't speak for anyone else, but in my case, inaction was mainly due to 
expecting affirmation from a more senior contributor.  Even having that, being 
away from home all weekend would have prevented me from taking any action.

I don't refer to the CG as much as I probably should, but having looked at 
section 3.4.10 recently, I'll say that if you want people to take swifter 
action on their own in cases like this, it might help to revise this very 
cautionary language:
