Nope. I did quote them (I mean "quote" in the "I quoted them in my post" and not the "I used the quote feature on the forum"). See my post and the quotation marks that I used. Also, harridan said "Amy is the band member who interacts the least with fans" which is a very different statement than "Amy is one of the least "interacting with my fans" singers out there" made by eva. I agree with what harridan is saying, but not with the second statement made by eva. Harridan's statement compares Amy's interaction with the rest of the band while Eva's statement compares her interaction with the rest of the singers out there in the world.
Let me know if you need any further clarification of my statements.
Yeah... please don't guys! It doesn't make any of us feel better! Back on topic!!
Until recent times, like we're talking only the last 10 years, there was a massive disconnect between artists and fans that there isn't anymore because of Twitter and Facebook; and just the overall approach to how important it is for artists to be more interactive with fans.
The gesture is from you. Absolutely Evanescence read fan mail and take pride in gifts from fans - there are a couple of spots in Life on the Road that prove this. Not only that, but all the likes, re-tweets, and thanking the fans en mass for their support means so. Like I said, the gesture is from you, and from an artist's point of view, it can a lot of times be really awkward to reply. Just speaking from the little slice of what I've experienced, getting fanmail from Germany... from Germany!! and I live on a little island in the Pacific! I still think of every time I've had someone flatter me with fanmail, and I really appreciate it. And I'm sure the same is true from Amy and the band. I've only ever had one stalker (who made me extremely afraid for my well-being)... and that's why artists feel the need to conduct response how they do. In the grand scheme of things, I'm a nobody, so I can't imagine how many times stuff like that has happened to Amy or anyone in the band.
It can be a catch-22 because. one of the hardest and most uncomfortable things you can go through is to have a total random person know a lot about you and come up to you in the street, freaking out and saying how you've inspired them and changed their lives, and wow... That's a lot to take in... All in one sudden moment. The same can be true in fanmail or any other communication. Just don't forget that we're all regular people, and you, as the fan are putting somebody up on a particular pedestal, and giving them a flattering gesture etc, etc. But to expect any kind of response from someone, in my opinion, is selfish. Your bidding is done. You have done the nice thing - the giving, and you can't force a reaction. But that does not mean that you or what you say goes unnoticed, or unappreciated. Actually, I can nearly guarantee you it's the opposite.

Where do I send a letter to Amy? I am not going to an Ev concert any time soon, cause there aren't any going on, and I want to write her a letter, but where am I supposed to send it so that she'll get it?
As far as I know, No there is nowhere to send physical mail to Amy/The band. You can try posting to Amy's Twitter/Facebook posts. She may not reply to you, but she may just read your tweet/post. No way to know for sure as she doesn't really reply to many people so no telling how many she reads without replying. Worth a shot though, you never know, you may just get a big surprise someday. When you least expect it, out of the blue, you just might get a notification saying she's replied to your post/tweet.
