I actually replied to the original message when it was raised to my
attention, but somehow forgot to reply to yours. I normally try to not
silently fix things, if only to let people know that it's helpful when
they point things out like that to me.

I agree, it's pretty hard for me to monitor all lists to see what's
going on. =-) On the other hand, I can understand someone's frustration
when they get ignored. It does happen that some requests slip through
the tracks, specially when all the listmasters happen to be busy at the
same time.
