Silence is golden and rude

Curious about Communication | Phone Calls and Voicemails, Part Four

Everyone loves music, but sometime, silence is just as amazing.
Except when it comes to communication.
Silence would be lack of communication.

When I was conducting my interviews, I also did a lot of research on the topic of communication. I came across something surprising.  Communication experts repeatedly stated that there was one fact of communicating that was not acceptable:

Not responding.

It’s bad etiquette. 
Rude, actually.
Other than avoiding an annoying sales call or a stalker, you really must respond.
But apparently people are deciding that it’s optional.

Is this how it goes for life in the the 21st century?
Is it okay not to respond?
