The bot programmer must take extreme care not to make their bot an
annoyance. In my opinion this would include:

* do not message the same person twice about the same kind of problem

* at the very least allow mappers to "opt out" of bot messaging, or
ideally use an opt-in where when someone submits a changeset, they don't
only tick "I would like someone to review my changeset" but also "I am
willing to receive automated messages about this changeset"
