Happy to respond to questions raised in a

constructive setting at a later time, e.g. IRC Office Hours.

Please explain why it is constructive to respond to questions when asked on IRC 
and not constructive to respond to questions on a mailing list?  If it merely a 
bad time, there is no reason that you can't respond on the mailing list in a 
week or two.  

I always thought offering IRC office hours were about offering different forums 
to reach more people who will tend to have different comfort levels for 
different forums.  Not cutting off other forums.
