Actually, your point appeared to be that you'd respond to a
previously-unknown correspondent who wrote _about something you'd
previously written_ (and I quote):
If someone sends me a message asking for my comment
because they read some other comment I wrote, do I really
care who that someone is... or who they know?
You yourself have identified the criteria 'they read some other comment
I wrote', not just "they wrote something interesting". I observe
that the former criteria qualifies as a variant of "...who they know".
