Being ignored works both ways

Recently Fred Wilson at Union Square wrote on his blog about VC etiquette and one gripe he opined on was the complaint that VCs can be slow responding to emals or not respond at all.

Having recently been involved in helping a portfolio company approach potential partners, including many web 2.0 styled firms, let me observe that being ignored works both ways.

A number of sites approached could only be contacted via email to unnamed persons. Over 60% provided no other means to get in touch. Worse, was that fewer than 10% had the courtesy to respond.

Of course, the invitation may have been unenticing or the timing bad. Nonetheless, I'd stake wads of cash that some of those same sites have bemoaned being ignored by VCs.
