How Many Sojourners Does It Take To Open a Window
I am looking for Social Proof. What do regular people do after posing a question in email when the recipient replies withou't addressing the question? Is it pushy to write back, repeating the original question? Is it weird to ask "Why didn't you answer my question?"
I get the impression many or most questions are understood as hypothetical. So, how do we signal, in writing, that we are posing a real question?
