Or they could be really busy working SHOT show and not scouring the interwebs to respond to all 9,000,000 ACR threads.
Of course, because they don't have internet in Vegas or because they didn't respond to some threads during the last few Shot Shows
Obviously you've never worked at a trade-show before.
As a low-level sales guy working the booth you spend 8 to 9 hours talking to people without very many breaks. After that time you have to catch up on your normal work (responding to emails/voice mails). After dinner and a quick call home the last thing you want to do is surf the net and respond to dorks on the internet.
Now multiply that by 3 or 4 for the bigwigs. Not only do they have to interact with customers and meet with industry contacts they still must respond to the needs of the office. Toss in entertaining clients at night and taking a dump, the time to deal with crying internet ninjas is pretty limited.
And as mentioned by someone else, they may have some legal issues they need to deal with and having a bunch of posts on the internet saying "Bushmaster fooked us!" isn't going to help.
I don't think you can chalk their silence up to some grand conspiracy as you implied. At least, not if you have any common sense.
