It depends on who really. Most of the time I don't reply fast because I don't feel like to if it's about regular conversations.
If I suddenly leave during a debate it's because the opponent is being disrespectful/ stays vague after mentioning/ circulating/ no arguments/ making up stuff or simply isn't honest, it makes me feel tired and basically drops the mood to write something back.
If someone starts a conversation and I leave him or her on read it's because I'm not interested.
If I get very late replies that as well makes me less interested to write something instantly back.
If I reply dry and take time it's because I'm mad or sad.
It happens that I reply late because I'm VERY busy (since I'm basically almost always busy, just know how to multitask) but that's not often.
I don't really reply late to 'weed out the weak', as punishment, contacting thing and stuff. Sounds childish. I just reply depending on my mood and the person.
If I'm interested enough I won't reply with a single word.

Lack of interest or being upset with the person are the most common reasons for me. Or if I just don't want to talk to anybody.
