[Cz-politics] Feedback and priorities? Anybody out there?

I am experiencing a similar lack of response, but your email provoked
a train of thought that led to a somewhat reassuring reflection.
Let me explain.
I found your article on the Battle of Britain fascinating and wholly
admirable, having witnessed a little of it (from underneath, as a
member of the Royal Observer Corps). But witnesses to an historic
event seldom understand what is happening - and although I took a
close interest in miltary aviation at the time, I am quite convinced
now that you know more about it than I do.
So beyond offering you thanks and congratulations, what can I say?
I've searched in vain for what seem to be inaccuracies,
understatements or exaggerations. I plan to try again, but it seems
very unlikely that I shall be able to offer any useful comment.
The reassuring reflection is that lack of response does not
necessarily mean lack of interest. It may even be possible that some
of my economics articles have an interested, but silent, readership!
Keep up the good work, and best wishes,
