Why are people so reluctant to contact another mapper?

I would have thought that a contact through the changeset comments would 
have been a first way of raising the issue, rather than through this list?

My personal methods are to first contact the mapper and ask/suggest.
Where I am not certain as to a 'best' method of doing something .. then 
I contact the list as that gets more ideas from a number of people.
