I don't need validation... but don't you think a response is polite or courteous?
maybe cos I am older, I think differently...?
To be frank, they don't have to respond if they don't want to. ATS is a large site, and it is to be expected that in some circumstances, people will
simply overlook your post or take the information of it into account, without replying.
That said, just because you don't get a response, doesn't mean that you are being ignored. Sometimes i don't respond to others, even in my own
threads. If i agree with others and can't contribute anything further in that particular line of discussion, i will star their post.
I don't think it rude of people to 'ignore' others. Members have outside lives and even live in different countries and timezones. They may
continue to post on in the thread without replying to your particular post, but perhaps it is just a simple case of not knowing what to say, or not
knowing how to contribute further to the discussion. At times, some people are particularly engaged in debates and conversations with another member,
and focus their sole attention on that. It doesn't mean they are purposely ignoring you.
