To be honest, it’s not really that serious. There are situations where you aren’t sure how to respond so you figure that ghosting is the right way. Yeah it may seem “cowardly” and all but people have a choice whether if they wish to respond or not. People either have a lot of things to deal, aren’t in the mood or just aren’t sure of what to respond to whatever you said. People are also busy. To me it isn’t a very big deal, I see it as some sort of mechanism2

That people prefer the easiest way for themselves and hit everyone else the hardest. As natural social creatures, that's counter productive as we sought for communication for our well being. Modern society is evolving and unfortunately the stress of everyday routine is getting unbearable.0
ghosted in the sense of ignoring?
Well, because it's easy and nothing happens to you. Also because they are numerous people in your contact list and so it seems as no big deal to ghost one of them.
What it says about our generation is clear for me. We are incapable of taking responsibility for our actions. If we mess up, we just walk away. We are not confident enough to speak out our opinion. Instead we escape, putting our phone away.
Also the digitalization of our lives made us into robots. We just act, we respond, but we don't feel for the other person. On the phone we can say what we want because we miss 95% of the conversation (body language). So in fact we are becoming more stupid because we value 5% communication (verbal) more than the 95%.
