"I can't quite believe...

I can. In my experience (both personal and professional) most folks don't pay attention to detail, but merely react to a superficial scan of what's in front of them.

This is likely to a great extent a protective response to swamping by the deluge of irrelevant stimuli thrust on us in the "developed world".

It is commonplace. Buddhist master Henepola Gunaratana famously said "we pay so little attention that we don't even realise we're not paying attention". However it can (and does) result in misunderstandings.
