> > I asked Dr. Bob if I ruined his presentation and he didn't respond. What does that mean? Is Dr. Bob angry?
> I've sent him 2 things and he hasn't replied to them, either. I assume he's very busy at the convention and he's out of his normal environment & routine. And maybe he won't ever reply to me: I've gotten his replies about 20% of the time, I think!

Yeah, Dr. Bob probably gets hundreds of e-mail a day. LOL I think he has to ignore a lot of them.

> Plus, didn't you say in your essay that Bob has a strategy of often not-responding to certain things?

Yes, yes he does. It's probably best not to respond to my non-admin related stuff. He has to have boundaries. It's nice that he keeps them, otherwise this place would be very different. Dr. Bob has to maintain his neutrality. Boy do I push the boundaries! LOL Sorry I'm a little nuts. LOL

> Maybe he is allowing you space to work through these uncomfortable feelings on your own. Maybe he thinks you might learn more helpful skills right now if he doesn't jump in. I don't know for sure.

I don't know. Like you said, there's no way to know for sure. I think maybe you're right that he's not angry. I saw him in real life after the presentation and he didn't seem angry. I think he doesn't jump in because then he would be participating on Babble. He's not supposed to do that.
