I know they say that "No response is still a response" but in today's lightning fast digital world, it seems to me that this is an increasingly common and somewhat lazy if not all together rude response.
Sure... people get busy... maybe sometimes they let it slide too long and forget to respond... it happens.
From the point of the person being, for lack of a better term, ignored... if enough of these "no response" responses pile up on someone, they can weigh heavy on one's mind. They start to generate all sorts of negative thoughts fairly quickly amidst all the silence. Was it something I said? Something I did? Am I not worthy of the two seconds of your time it would take to type a simple yes or no? Which more often than not will be all the response necessary.
An "interested" or "not interested," as seen so often on the facebook Buy & Sell pages, is more than enough when there's a used video game or a pair of boots for sale....why isn't it an easy response used more often in digital conversations?
In this digital age... it seems far too many people "Leave ya hanging."
