If I leave you a comment is it considered fan mail?

don,
thank you so much for asking this very important question that needs clarification.
all responses to this post are considered fan mail.
now taking a broader view of comments to other less obvious fan posts ... i don't think this really qualifies because i actually try to respond as often as i can.
imagine ...
dear elvis,
we have not heard from you in years. do you even read our cards and letters any more?
... now this qualifies as real fan mail. the key is ... you know it's fan mail when no one responds at all. but even if i reply saying "burp", it is no longer qualified as being fan mail.
fan mail is something you tell people you have ... only when you have no intention of responding to it. so if you want this to fully qualified as fan mail ... please tell me in advance to ignore it completely.
by the way ... have you got snow up there this winter? is it as bad as last year?
all the best tonight from LA!

I think I understand that previous comment, so in order for this to be fan mail, please ignore this comment completely. Of course, if you do that, you won't know that you have fan mail, so then what good is it? What a conundrum!
