Thing is, most people on the list have to make a living. For the majority
I'd say that's probably with full-time paying jobs, which means time
available for answering questions on the mailing list is limited. Then
there's the time difference issue. I'm in the UK. By the look of your email
address you're in France? Mailing list members are scattered across the
world in all manner of different time zones. That means replying to a post
as quickly as you'd like isn't always going to happen.

When a service (the mailing list) is provided free of charge, one does not
have the right to *expect* a reply. When people reply to one's posts it
should be considered a blessing.

Unfortunately it's quite a complex subject and depends heavily on your exact
requirements. I've found the best approach is to give the wizard a go, then
modify what it comes out with. It really is a question of trial and error.
