There's a novel idea. Require incoming senior staff at an email
company to work a month at the abuse desk before they can assume the
duties for which they were hired.

My hunch says that's a non-starter. It also doesn't keep qualified
folks at the abuse desk; it shuffles them through.

Any other ideas?
