you will have record when you receive a reply. Otherwise any "record"
is just as useful as you writing it down yourself.
If you don't receive a reply, your request was not processed, not even
read, and thus you can wipe your ass with your "record" of the
original request, but nothing more.

No, that does not prove anything at all. It might be able to send mail
to address xy, but not reach the admins, it proves nothing.

People don't need to send it via the website list. But if you want the
original request for your own records, that's the easiest way.
