Why would you assume that someone else would automatically reply to
you? And assume that if they don't, they cannot satisfactorily do so?
These are odd assumptions.
Do you answer every piece of mail that comes your way, talk to
everyone who shows up at your door, or calls you on the phone? You're
under no obligation to communicate with every person who has a mouth
and/or a keyboard, nor are any of us. Nor should you have any reason
to reply to my interrogative sentences in this post.
