I'm afraid I only joined the mailing list in time to read the email
that I responded to, and I stand by my comments on that.  With no
previous context, "What questions have ye?" is the only question
I can see.  For my benefit, could you possibly supply the context?

For a specialist membership list where everyone is going to have their
particular sub-specialism, this is perfectly normal.  I would just
observe that "does this match this" is very often not a simple question
at all.

It seems you didn't read your email at all.  Also, as ways to make
friends and influence people go, this doesn't.
