Not ignoring each other is a sign of equality, mutual respect in normal conversation matters. There is an inclusionary concept and an exclusionary concept. Gender equality - "she includes he". Distance or any other factor will not be impediment in acquisition of knowledge and also expositing ones interest in sharing the knowledge.”

If you don’t succeed on first point that you think best, then you cannot succeed on second or third point.”
