Some readers are protofans who need only achieve contact to make their way into the microcosm, but many are not. Some who know about fandom are uninterested. Some readers go to Readercon or other cons, especially when an author they like will appear -- they watch programming, perhaps visit the hucksters room, and then go home without interacting with fans.
