FWIW, I think reasonable minds can differ on that point. Same day, or
even same week; sure, that's too soon. But a week later? IMO we can give
the guy some slack here. It's not uncommon for most of us to
occasionally let mail pile up, and even a message we wanted to respond
to can get buried. A friendly reminder can serve to prompt those who
were already inclined to respond to do so.
Or, put another way, rather than focusing on being the mailing list
police it would probably be better for some folks to ignore/delete
messages that don't meet their high standards of netiquette.
