you are missing the differences between "ignored", "assigend" and "fixed"
where did you see a line that a bug must be fixed in whatever time?
you did not because it is not there

the point is that if a reporter takes time to file a bugreport
he can expect any response - this response may be change status
from "new" to "assigend" even without any comment

if you now saying that a maintainer has not the time to do this
simple step realize that the reporter in the future has no time
to report any bugs for nothing and that if the "assigned" is
tto much work the maintainer has really other problems and
appearently no time to maintain the package any longer
