It does seem like a rather broad brush to explain a non-response. In a world with lots of depression, bi-polar, etc. there could be myriad of explanations. I was struck by the comments made in response to the article. Judgmental, virolent, some even worse...this may be another explanation people "ghost" rather than initiate the potential never ending, threats, negative responses, unencumbered by anything more than a keyboard (and maybe a few laws). I have never ghosted and I do think it problematic. However, it may also be out of fear or immediate potential for cyberbullying.
