As a general rule, a response of any sort is preferable to nothing, at least
it means somebody bothered to read the complaint, which is quite a stretch
from the truth in quite a few places.

Are you really saying that if I tell you that a dial-up user on

expect a response from you if I PAY for it ?!?

Umm... would you be satisfied with a "We've referred it to the appropriate
people" response?

At least here, and probably many other universities, we're stuck not being
able to say much more than that due to student confidentiality rules...

Yes, we take action.  No, we usually can't say what we did.
