Maybe it works better in upgraded Bugzilla :)

Waiting one month to find out whether a bug was assigned correctly is 
too long, in my opinion, unless the assignee is busy gathering enough 
information to be able to tell.

I think we should ping bug reports for which we haven't got a 
confirmation that the assignment was correct after two weeks, except 
when the assignee shows activity in the report.

If the assignee thinks the bug was assigned correctly, he can put OK on 
the whiteboard or set status to ASSIGNED, and he won't show up in this 
search again, so he won't be pinged for this reason again.
