An issue is found with a listing either through a report, an odd review
And this is what I think has happened, some fake malicious report is made about something wrong, the editors rush and unpublish the extension, damaging the developer's business, the extension's reputation and damaging the end user's Joomla experience, and the report itself may be about non-existent issue, but because of the editor's task load, they couldn't investigate it well
I suggest that if the editor is not 100% sure that there is a violation then there should be some kind of warning or notice email to the developer, then they can unpublish the extension after the 2nd report of the same issue ?
And actually what happens when the extension is unpublished ? the developer will try to do fixes or will try to ask questions about how to fix, still many support messages will be made eating editors' time.
You could also add something like the "Editor's note", instead call it "Editor's warning" in red, and write your thoughts, and allow the developer to reply or comment, that would warn users, warn the developer, but wouldn't do big damages, and both parties can have their time to fix the issue.
