I think most of you know, that I proposed the three strikes, but I am for the best solution so. let's wait till the end of the discussion....

Okay do you mean the button "Send mail to bug Assignees"?
In my query some of the following would get mail: Me, A. Timar, Joel... 
so QA staff + dev
So, what should we do? I was able to display the e-mail of the reporter, 
but you won't get me to send 200 mails....
A button "Send mail to the reporter and everyone who is interested in 
this bug" would be nice ;) [Sorry for sarcasm]

BTW: I have a improved query for LT Neeedinfo bugs: Currently 393
