I’ve decided to retire my “Statement to responding to email” (mikefrandsen.org/2009/01/05/no-reply-at-all/) from my email signature. Since I put it up there it hasn’t increased the percentage of people who respond to emails that require a response. Luckily most people respond when a question is asked or an important email is sent. As for the rest, I guess I’ll just have to guess whether a non-response means the person was just busy and overlooked responding, or whether I am supposed to read between the lines and figure out that when people don’t respond it means they disagree with the email or something. Also see mikefrandsen.org/2010/05/14/responding-to-email.
