I just somehow realized that there is a whole other (other) Facebook message inbox where people request to connect on Messenger. I've always ignored these notifications because I don't have and don't want Messenger, but I now realize I have dozens, maybe hundreds of unread and unanswered message requests that actually have messages attached to them. I'm sure I have deleted many of them as well.

SO to anyone who has sent me a message that I never replied to, I apologize. I'm going to start working my way through the backlog now. If you sent me a message and I do not reply in the next few weeks, please forgive me and send it again. There's an excellent chance I deleted it thinking it was just another attempt by Facebook to get me to sign up for their creepy Messenger system.
