meaning: be lost on
Could you clarify the meaning of "be lost on" as in examples:
"The irony of the event was not lost on the crowd."
"I am sure it was not lost on the Kenyan population." or
"The message was not lost on those who loved Greg."
I think that I have a feel for the meaning but I want just to be sure to avoid any misleading usage.
