Silence means consent

Silence means consent. Do you agree?

In my opinion he who is in silent says nothing!

My friend, you cannot be more wrong.
Silence means voiceless,but to your ears only.
Silence may mean the buildup of fury or indifference or other states of mind,consent just being one of them.
So what you said needs to be revised.

I said it always doesn't mean consent.
I agree with you that it can mean many other points of view.

Not at all.

Silence can means many things. But when somebody don't answer you when own behaviour has been good with him that's means he is a rude person.
Or he's not balanced

Maybe she/he doesn't answer because he/she doesn't like writing to a ghost with a worrying surname ;)

In any case, Elisa, believing in ghosts and to be scared of a surname, it makes suspicious that there is a problem and that problem doesn't come from the surname itself.
You will agree with me that any person that values other person through his surname is, at least, immature. The reasoning, "this surname is nice, he must be good person, this another one is ugly, he must be a bad person " is a total immaturity.
Well... If he was called "Count Dracula", then you'd be right. But this is a fantasy case. :lol:
I hope you do not mind but the things what you say it makes me think that you're more than a teacher, a pupil.

I am sure you know what I want to say, and if you don't understand I beg your pardon.
I don't think this is the right place for hurting or giving further explanations.
Bye
