When I closed your question, I stated that there isn't a professional quant in the world who would have started a question the way you did. Here's what you originally said:
Background: I'm stuck with a deadbeat life insurance policy holder
(Western Reserve Life) who refuses to give customers historical
pricing data of their fund selections under the pretext of "market
timing". Their most recent performance metrics are uselessly out of
date, typically from last quarter: "Average Returns as of 2011-12-31",
basically on par with prospectuses(sp?), not previous market day's or
week's closing as one would minimally hope. Their list of fund choices
available for allocation are no where to be found by similar names at
3rd party ratings like MorningStar, nor exhaustive Google searching.
For example, find me OHLCV charts and reviews on TA BlackRock Tactical
Allocation @$10.331/share, TA JPMorgan Tactical Allocation, TA
BlackRock Global Allocation @9.970. TA=Transamerica presumably(the
website is pretty bad).
I've also pointed you to the FAQ, which clearly states that this site is intended for professionals or academics in quantitative finance. What you posted above does not meet this criteria.
As for your suggestions:
- There is no timeline for a question to "air". Any post that is clearly off-topic is closed immediately.
- A moderator does not flag for discussion. A moderator exercises his powers according to his judgement.
This the case for every Stack Exchange site I've ever participated on. Had you posted on Stack Overflow about some software vendor who annoyed you that question would have been closed too.
