I know there have been several comments over the last few months about response rates, but I’ve had a strange one over the last few days.
In quick succession, I had 2 messages, both of which had been marked as spam by someone else so I hadn’t been able to respond to them. I’ve had this before and my response rate dropped as a result.
This time, however, when I checked my messages several hours later (no need to check if I don’t get a notification - or so I thought) both messages were still there and waiting for replies as the spam status had been lifted.
So, my response rate has gone down again, despite the fact I couldn’t reply to them when I was first notified - how does that work??
