Well, shoot .... here we go again with Gato left behind, as everyone else moves forward.

I commented to my wife that my e-mails to a particular individual were being ignored. She caught me up to date, telling me that I was being "ghosted".

I'm what now .... what am I?

She, being conversant with Facebook and other social media, tried to bring me up to speed.

According to Wikipedia, the term began to resonate back around 2015, when it broke out of the intimate relationship mold, and assumed a more general application.

Other related terms include "ghostbusting" (where I would force a reply)

"Caspering", where my e-mail respondent would let me down gently in ending our connection.

I'd sit right down and right that e-mail dude a letter, using a postage stamp on the envelope, but all I have is an e-mail address.

Now I definitely feel "woke". Did I get that right?
