I think that raising the question here is fine. I also think that it is more WMF's responsibility to be responsive than community members' responsibility to guess where and how to ask questions.
In general (this is not intended as a criticism of you, Dan) my view is that WMF has a very mixed record on responsiveness. Some employees and board members repeatedly go above and beyond the call of duty, while other employees and board members ignore repeated questions, and some people are in between. The first group seems to me to deserve a lot of credit, while second group comes across to me as disrespectful and lazy. I have previously complained about problems with responsiveness to multiple managers in WMF, and unfortunately that has not resulted in widespread improvements that I have observed. I think that the problem may have more to do with organizational culture and lack of will than with lack of capacity. Let me emphasize that unresponsiveness is not a problem with everyone in WMF, but I think that it is a significant problem and I know of no excuses for it.
