I'd say "arrogant" is a bit harsh. There are mailing lists where there is a good summary culture (haven't come across one lately though, remember it rather from 15 years ago) which doesn't make you feel excluded, rather quiet mailing list where a sudden lengthy discussion would cause people to react bewildered and alienated, and specialized questions which only interest a handful readers, who could always contact the original contributor for more information.

This list and Hans' question doesn't fit any of the criteria. Therefore I agree with Tom's conclusion:

but I'd say that there are situations where it would be best to follow Hans' request.

                              One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture  from such a trifling investment of fact.                (Mark Twain, "Life on the Mississippi")
