we actually do, and look through the nomination queue...and even browse
new bugs...it's just that we simply can't catch them all.  Kate is
actually working on some tools and heuristics that will help us
hopefully improve this.

Hmm...I can see why not allowing someone to nominate after being
rejected is a feature too.  

I think the bottom line is that we need better QA processes in place,
and we know this...and are working damn hard on it :).  But until we get
to a place where we are comfortable, we have to hope folks like you
continue to *politely* ;), let us know when we may have made a mistake.
