A response of silence to questions and quandary can be considered a form of intimidation. When people repeatedly ignore questions or not respond to requests, they send a worrisome message that you are not worth the time or energy that a response takes.
As much as possible, it is my intent to respond to requests, questions, and issues in a timely, polite manner. If I don't respond, please let me know. Also if you are not pleased with the response, let me know that too.
I worry about those who don't respond. I keep track to understand trends and try to find, perhaps, a better way, but all in all consistent silence with regard to responses to questions, concerns, and issues is intimidating and disconcerting. Onward.
