I wrote to someone on the 5th July, 2017 seeking clarification on an earlier conversation.

I never heard from them again. Until yesterday, when I received a long, thoughtful, considered email answering all of my questions.

No reference as to why it took them nearly 6 years to reply. I mean nothing.

It’s as if they were beamed into a time warp and have just now returned and they just aren’t aware that they have been ‘lost’ these past 6 years.
