Even right in this thread, you can see my question in the post #4, it still lies there. I know such those cases may happen accidentally, so I said I accept it.
    Thank you!
    Maybe it's the way you ask followup questions? You didn't address your question "Could you please give some comments?" to anyone specific.
    Both Rover and I had given comments, which you obviously understood, so I assumed you wanted other posters to give opinions - though what on, I couldn't guess. Maybe you need to nominate a person who has already answered and ask them specifically what you are unsure about.

    Yes, sometimes teachers occasionally overlook a followup question in a reply. We've all done that occasionally. It's not the norm though; and students shouldn't expect it to be.

    . . .maybe our teachers are too busy to review and check this thread again. Accept it as a usual thing!
    We all have a life beyond this forum, so it is a usual thing to have to wait for a reply.
