Basically we're in agreement: communication, especially where it impacts someone directly, is a courtesy most people appreciate. :-)

As I mentioned, and although it may not seem so at times - I've had over 60 years to beat my insecurities into submission - I'm very shy. As a result, I've learned to phrase things to protect my own fragile ego while still doing what needs to be done.

For instance, when letting an author know a new podbook of their work is available, I'm likely to say something like "There is a new podbook of so and so's lovely new podfic [here] if you would like to have a copy." This is nice and generic and doesn't make me feel like I'm blowing my own horn.

I've been very successful with this technique and often get grateful responses even from people who have put up blanket permissions, while at the same time it doesn't demand a response if the recipient doesn't feel like making one. It's all good.
