I’ve always believed that when you boil everything down, everyone wants two basic things:

  1. To be listened to
  2. To be appreciated/recognized

Consequently, it really pisses me off how a large number of people simply fail to respond to emails which clearly require a response.  Sure, there are emails that don’t require a response, e. g. the latest lolcat at that I wanted to share.  But when I ask a question or send a meeting invitation, you would think that would elicit some sort of response, even if it is “Not no, HELL no.”  What do I get a lot of the time instead?  Crickets.  I mean, come on, do my emails smell bad or something?

And to those of you who do reply to my emails, I do really appreciate it.
