See the excellent answer from Allan. The headers of the original message

Ideally, the list should be for questions which others may be able to 
answer or questions which are of general interest (so your question was 
fine). In practice, most users are just going to use the feedback method 
that they prefer (list, ticket system, feedback email, blog comment, or 
Twitter). That is fine for me. Well, maybe not Twitter where a question 
often fits within the 140 char limit, but it is very difficult to fit an 
answer within the same limit while still being polite :-)
