So ... if you are moving at a different angle, or rate of speed from ( I like 5-10k faster than the flow ) you have a better chance of being seen. Ever look at something in wide view and you only noticed the animal when it moved... kinda the same thing
Someone is going to have a more detailed / better explanation.. But that's my 2
No need, I got it and it makes sense. Also, someone else responded to it earlier but it's like leaving yourself messages on the fridge or something.
If they're there too long or you put too many, you wind up not seeing them or ignoring them.
My memory sucks so I send myself emails as reminders and guess what, I do it so often that finally I ignore or forget half of them.
