That scenario I just don't see as a problem.  If they are on all the
lists, and the poster truly didn't get a satisfactory answer (and really
did wait for one), then there's no foul, and they should realize that, if
they followed the thread. 

Some people just like to complain -- you will always run into a few of
these, no matter where you go.  If you want to post messages on mailing
lists or on Usenet, you should expect that someone, at some time, will
flame you.  That doesn't make it o.k. by any means, but it's going to
happen.  Some people just haven't learned any manners, and even those of
us that have occasionally get riled up over nothing (myself most
definitely included)... Except for the rare few, people have bad days, and
sometimes the littlest things can set them off.  Welcome to humanity...
