Have you ever received an email and shortly thereafter, the sender asking you whether you have either read it or even acted upon it? Why should you? It’s just a mail!
When you give a present to someone, you hope that the receiver likes it and uses it. But, once it is given the new owner decides what to do with it: use it, give it to someone else, or throw it away. Advice and any other feedback is just like a present. Therefore, don’t expect that the recipient will like it or act upon it either as you expected or not at all.
