I, too, feel that any number of my posts seem to disappear into the
ether but after spending several years one various lists and groups I
learned it doesn't always bother me. Specifically, it doesn't bother
me if a comment isn't responded to and I feel good if it kicks off a
discussion. It does bother me a little if a question gets ignored.
I'm not sure how I feel when a question is responded to but the
response takes the discussion in some other direction entirely.
The list often backs up on me, in that sometimes it's a week before I
can read the accumulated mass of digests. This has three effects -
y'all see a bunch of posts from me all at once (I don't mean to
monopolize the conversation), that I'm often behind the trend on
responses, and that I respond less than when I read the digests in
And I try not to "me too" posts, but there are a lot I could do that
In sum, no response doesn't equal no notice, but it's hard to tell
that. Tora's interpretation gets my vote.
