This has happened to me a few times and I dont really get it. I have sent messages to other members (these are nice notes, like "hey I really liked your answer to my question, thank you!" or "great journal post, do you have any more information on that topic") and most of the time, the person will reply, but a few times, there just hasn't been any response. I think this is really rude. Has it ever happened to you and why do you think someone would not write back if the note was friendly?

Are you leaving these in a personal message or are they in a chatterbox? If it is a chatterbox, they may just not notice. If it's a message, they may either a) only read there messages once every few weeks or b) they may read it but at the time they read it they may not have time to respond back and then forget to when they do have time. Also, if you are sending them a message of "friendly advice", expect to be ignored or even blocked. I had that happen to me a few days ago. Someone responded to my question, but instead of putting it in answers they messaged me, telling me what I need to do. Um, No, Thank you! Anyways, there could be a number of reasons why they didn't respond back. I wouldn't take it too personal though.
