About 30 hours ago, I posted an item on meta that was not here 12 hours later. What's going on?
Okay, my fault apparently.
I deleted the post and immediately contacted Michael to discuss it offline. I then hopped on a plane to Australia and missed the discussion here.
François recommended to me that I use the new 2.0 feature for contacting users through the site rather than by email. At this point I don't like the idea very much, but could be persuaded.
Our previous policy had been that if you don't provide identifying information in your profile (e.g. a real name or email address), you shouldn't expect particularly much patience from the moderators!
The new "internal" notification mechanism in fact makes it easier for users to remain pseudymous, which I think is a bad thing! I would prefer to stick to our old ways --- you're welcome to be pseudonymous or uncontactable, but only on your best behaviour!
