    I think its a case of 'Out of sight out of mind' in most cases Glenville.

      I always try to say thank you but sometimes other things in life just take over sometimes and then I forget

        I agree with both of the above comments but also think there is an element of embarrassment if they can't afford the price quoted (if that is what it was). I have had a couple of times recently where I thought the same as you only to find weeks later they have contacted me - one had had to go into hospital unexpectedly and one had just lost his job so that project is still 'on hold'.

        Sadly whilst doing business electronically is extremely handy and quick it doesn't help that you don't get a 'feel' for the customer's opinions and mood in the same way as you do with a face-to-face or even telephone communication.

        Annoying but just a fact of life we will have to get more used to I'm afraid.

          I think there is a little bit also to the internet not 'breeding' exactly, but lending itself to what could be seen as rudeness, because I remember going on courses in whilst working in big companies that were aimed at what they saw as unnecessary emails - i.e. if you have nothing to say then don't send anything. So if they don't want to accept the quote they might feel that in not answering, they have answered, if you know what I mean. I agree with you it is a little tactless, but maybe a sign of the times only.

              I know what you mean.

              I sometime' get questions about my items and of course I always answer them but some people never even acknowledge I've answered. It then make's me wonder if they've received my email and should I email them again.

              Mostly people say thank you but when someone doesn't I do then wonder if I should be trying to contact them again in case they didn't get my answer and they just think I'm not responsive to inquiries.

                I think the internet may be partly to blame but politeness starts at home when small the number of times I had to write thank you letters for gifts etc but this does not seem to be done now. Yes think things are now worse the manners in the street sometimes beggar belief and I think as we have seen on the news etc hard times do make people selfish but again they could be embarrassed. I tend to not worry now did to begin with but agree a simple email saying thank you but too much for me atm is I think perfectly understandable.

                  It's easy to say please and thank you. My 2 year old does it often enough without any prompting. I think sometimes people might be embarrassed to say "thank you for taking your time over this, but I don't actually think your advice helps/don't actually like how you have designed that piece because of x,y, or z" so instead hide away afraid to insult.
