This kind of langage is not acceptable, nor on Commons, nor on this list.
Please stop using it right now, you not helping yourself.

Deletion requests are usual on Commons, WLM depend on Commons, so deletion
of WLM files are to be expected (in France, the WLM team even create the
deletion request themselves).
For this particular request, it's a bit messy but it seems totally legit to
me and I don't see the problem who lead you to write this mail. The files
are not deleted yet, you could still move them to local projects  (and even
if they were deleted, a Commons sysop can still transfer the files to local

I'm very surprised to hear that you don't have Commons users to help you,
how and why is that? (for WLM France, except for WMfr staff, nearly all
members of the team are Commons users or Commons sysop; is this unusual?).
