Sorry to be a whiner, but I'm a little disappointed in the behavior of
some members of this list.

I've had similar lack-of-response blues occasionally, but I try not to let it get me down.

Yes, sometimes people forget to send thanks. But don't blame all instances on deliberate malice or even lack of courtesy. Sometimes thank-you messages bounce because a server is busy. Sometimes *your* carefully crafted message goes astray and is never received. It's a reality of cyberspace, and one reason why many companies still use FedEx for Really Important Stuff.

Sometimes, I'm convinced, my reply message electrons elope with somebody else's original message that I never saw, although at least 87 other people apparently got it and replied promptly.
