That's probably a good estimate.  Most who are going to reply do so  
rather quickly.  A few others only check in occasionally and might see  
the comments online.  The rest never reply.  I think part of the the  
problem is you have to opt in to getting comment e-mails and it is  
buried rather deep in the profile.

I would rather have people fix their own files and learn from the  
experience, but after about a month I'll go back and try to fix the  
ones I can.  Some of course have problems that cannot be fixed by a  
third party.  If they have just uploaded something inappropriate  then  
I usually just delete it.

Other Admins: please besides posting a comment also take the extra  
time and change the admin tags to the new state i.e. "unchecked" to  
"cleanup" etc.
