Impatience is the problem.  Here are the times of the three messages.

  help-bash: Date: Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:14:31 +0700
  help-bash: Date: Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:20:46 +0700
   bug-bash: Date: Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:31:40 +0700

You waited six minutes for a response to help-bash and then sent it
there again.  You then waited eleven minutes before forwarding it to
bug-bash.  Neither six nor eleven minutes is a reasonable amount of
time to wait for a response.

Plus your timezone is +0700 while most of the moderation folks and
bash folks operate out of -0500 through -0800.  It may be the middle
of the day for you but that is the middle of the night for others.
Your first message was held for moderation and released at a very
early morning time of 05:44:56 -0800.  Your bug-bash message had no
moderation delay probably due to previous contact there.

Please have some patience.
