Hi Tupka. I appreciate you taking the time to help with some of the adoption requests. However, requests are generally answered within a few business days. While it is sometimes true that it can still take a week for an answer, it is not "normal" for that to happen.
Not often, twice as far as I remember. In one case (shan't name names in public), it involved information taken from phone book sites and a picture from twitter. We did it as a courtesy, but not every admin agreed with it. I did, and I think we could've handled it more gracefully. The other... I can't remember anymore.
