Feedback to print media

Duncan states the obvious:
I will never stop finding the fact people who work in traditionally print-oriented outlets have gotten such little reader feedback over the years fascinating, and how shocked they are when they get some.

I did some very occasional (like, not more than once a year) freelance work for the Washington Post Book World a ways back and (1) heard about people asking questions on Usenet or similar and (2) was forwarded letters from WPBW readers.

I find it difficult to believe that people writing for TNR and the like regularly, over a period of time, have not received reader feedback through mail.

Whether they have paid any attention to it is left as an exercise to the reader.
