That's not rude. That is just un-sympathetic. This kind of mailing
list behavior is common on the Internet, so people should be able to
deal with it. And they should be able to deal with reply-to-munging,
which is also quite common.

Somebody saying "consensus is reached [after 24 hours], so who do I
contact to change this?" is rude in my book. It never gave the
community time to comment on the issue. And changing the dynamics of
how the community talks to each other *is* something to give enough
time to. 72 hours. Minimum.

That's a statement of opinion. You gotta try harder to be rude :-)
