Please don't overlook the difference of culture that is also present here.
The admins receiving the abuse mail will be answerable to their manager. It
is almost impossible for them to raise the issue with the manager without
losing face ("we have a problem") or without the manager losing face ("Your
management has led us to having a problem") Without the approval of the
manager nothing will change, regardless of how "right" the cause might seem
to western eyes.

(The appearance of) respect for, and submission to, authority is still a
very strong reality in Korea, and to some exent many other Asian countries.
