I had a similar situation back in the 90's with a fairly senior tester. He would report bugs like this, but he would also not provide any clear way to reproduce the issue. I would get this problem report, try and reproduce it and find it all working.

So I would kick it back to him as "no repro" and ask for the steps to reproduce. Instead I just got vitriol and the bug punted back to me to fix.

In these sort of cases, it is up to management to provide a clear mechanism to decide on issues and priorities. Nowadays we tend to have sprints where the tasks are decided, including features and issues to be addressed. Only real show-stoppers can get added mid-sprint, and that still has to go through some sort of review.

To all the people in QA (I used to be one): Issues need to be investigated. Reduced to the smallest common repro steps. And any insights as to the issue is helpful. The more info you can provide, the easier you make it for development to figure out what is wrong and address it.
