[Animesh>] There is no monopoly or hierarchy, everyone is equal. When someone asks another
person to pick up an issue it is a request not an assignment. They can always say they can't
and unassign with comments

[Animesh>] That's reasonable for a ticket created by a QA member of the community but for
tickets coming from users they may not know who should those be assigned and we would like
to lower the barrier of entry for users reporting the defects.
