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.
Johannes Hüsing               There is something fascinating about science. 
                              One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture 
mailto:johannes at huesing.name  from such a trifling investment of fact.
