  1. Yes, manners matter; how well-mannered is it not to respond to someone’s personal e-mail? You send a message, with a question, and get no response; for days or weeks. Or you send some shocking news about something that has happened to you or yours, and no response. In my book: extremely rude.

  2. Hi Kathy,
    Sorry, I have been out of town and did try to reply to your comment on the 21st with my Blackberry. However, I don’t think you received it. So I apologize.

    I just wanted to let you know that I agree with your comment. And I am sure that there are many of us that feel the same way. It is unfortunate that people don’t reply in a timely fashion and sometimes they don’t reply to emails at all. The sad thing is that so many of us are bombarded with so much spam that sometimes genuine emails are never seen. When you receive an email it is important to respond as quickly as possible. If you can respond with an answer to the email. At least respond to let the person know that it will take you some additional time to answer their question or to give them the desired information. I always recommend some kind of acknowledgment within 48 hours.
