Not `Nobody' but `Very few' & then a major pain best pre-deterred.

Most volunteer unpaid admins not working for employers, have no employer
protection, but will still have personal savings they wouldnt want at risk.

The attention to GDPR in an increasingly litigous world will encourage
more complainers & more ambulance chasing lawyers looking for jobs.

There's also the occasional looney that's really malicious: 
   (eg back running majordomo, I saw a few swine report a whole
   domain as a spammer, as they were too lazy to learn to unsubscribe
   themselves, they also emitted all sorts of time wasting annoying
   threats, best warn people before they start )

A generic in distribution + site supplemental link to an empty dummy
would be well worth the few hours it would take to write.
We could start drafting our own under various
& share URLs & ides here, then someone could merge for distribution ?

Not me yet, I want to deter users from wasting admin time requesting anything.
