    I don't think it's rude to ask people to send their question to the appropriate list. I do this for every single project of mine for which there is a list, and I have a very firm policy of never answering questions sent to me personally for said projects. I don't want to encourage bad habits.

    I usually just reply with something like "Please send all DateTime-related questions to datetime@perl.org."

    It's short, but I don't think it's rude. The person who sent me personal email was the rude one, if anything, for not reading the docs and looking for the text I wrote which clearly says where to send bug reports and questions.
