Francois observes:
<Snip>
This isn't a "service," it's a few folks who like to roast coffee
sitting around and chatting.  If your question were of general interest
to the list, then someone would probably have an answer, and would pipe
up.  Unfortunately, importing coffee into Canada is pretty far outside
the area of interest of most home-roasters (with a couple of exceptions,
and they aren't really "home" roasters), so who would answer your
question?
He adds:
<Snip>
The usual reason is because the replier thinks that the reply is not of
interest to anyone other than you and he.  It's the polite thing to do
if your intercourse is not of a general nature.

P.S. I'm not the "Rick" he mentions in the second quote.  *I* didn't
email him offlist.  Can't pin it on me *this time*.  Nope.  No way.  I
just did my best to answer his questions.  Rather civilly this time, I
think.
P.P.S.  I did sort of wonder if the post was one of those "If you don't
know anyone, I have this friend that does it" type of posts.  Sad that
Larry Paletti confirmed it.

I'm rather sorry that he managed to so successfully reinforce the stereotype
of the 'tetchy' French Canadian.  My wife is Canadian, and I understand
their general grumpiness at being mostly ignored by Americans - I keep
telling them they need to take some hostages - but Francois really seemed to
be right off the scale.  While I'm sorry that he took umbrage, I think I am
not sorry that he has left us...if indeed he has.  Now that I come to think
of it, if I was pulling the sort of commercial fakery that he seemed to be
about, I might do just what he did...in the hopes that nicer folks would be
inclined to invite him (and his sample case) back into the house.  Just a
thought...

Dang Rick, that was way to entirely civil and thoughtful an answer. You'll
loose your curmudgeon status if you're not careful! :-)
