That has not been my experience. In fact the last time I sent a 
coherently-explained, completely civil, on-topic,and time-sensitive email to 
the list, it was held by a moderator who:

A) Suggested I was "trolling the WMF" (is trolling an entire 100-person-plus 
organization even possible?)

B) Faulted it on bases including that I used the phrase "couple days" (i.e. 
"this might take a couple days") rather than his preferred formulation "couple 
*of* days"

C) Put it up for a consensus vote among the other list moderators. 

I see the list has some new moderators, but I figure odds are this email will 
be stopped as well.
