    Hi there,

    Some topics generate hundreds of reads but few replies. Others, well ... I'm not one for scientific studies. Nor why one thing works and another will not, despite the time and effort put into it (whatever the thing/endeavor happens to be).

    Kindly inform me if you, in passing by and, having nothing better to do of a Saturday eve, happen to see this post but have no intention of responding.

    Perhaps this is rocket science after all.

    Thank you for reading though finding no necessity to reply ...

    funny question - impossible to answer without replying! I generally check out your posts, anyway, although quite often I have nothing useful to add.

    CoCo, I just do not have time to respond to your post.

    It's still Friday here in So Cal.

    I should be on the road heading home but there is a serious train collision and miscellaneous other crashes on the freeways so it's best to just stay put and let everyone clean up their messes before I hit the road.

    Nothing much better to do at my office so I'm responding to your inquiry.

    My experience has been that some topics are not easy to respond too, as they pretty much covered the thought. While others, like this one, are just asking for a response ... am I right?

  • AudeSapere

    I think you are right.

    "I have nothing useful to add."

    Not so. Your estimable, unwritten additions are mute testimony that such are not subtractions from the esteem we hold for what you choose to say - or not to say.



    "I just do not have time to respond to your post."

    Next time, rather than your merely waving as you pass by, I hope that you might, at the very least, spare me a dozen words.


    "It's still Friday here in So Cal."

    It's No Cal here but I was planning ahead ...

    Thanks, dear ones, for your kindly and most undeserved indulgence.

    "am I right?"

    My skewed thinking involves the paradoxical admonition presented in a letter penned by a daft writer:

    "I hope you'll reply to my letter, but if it doesn't reach you, I'll understand."

    So, if you read this thread but chose not to reply, that's fine. You are right!

    Thanks for reading even if you didn't ...
