2) If you can't give me reproduction steps, don't raise a ticket.
So you say: Completely ignore heisenbugs, POM-errors, race conditions ... all sorts of intermittent errors. You don't want to hear about them. You don't want to log them. You don't want to spend any time on trying to see if you can reproduce them (e.g. by overloading the system to create more resource conflicts). Those problems are not real. You do not want to even consider them.

If a test fails one of a thousand runs, you say: Forget it! If one of a hundred runs fails: Forget it! If one of ten runs fails: Forget it! You can't reliably reproduce it, so forget it! Where do you draw the line? What if every second run, on the average but not consistently, fails?

So I do not agree with your second point. I'd rather say: "If you can't give me reproduction steps, don't take for granted that I will have it fixed, neither tomorrow, in a week or in a year. But please: If it happens again, report it again, with as many details as possible, and we will try to see if there is some recurring patteren in all the reports of this problem".
