Ethical dilemma

Somebody you know posts something online about their actions/intentions and motivations. You feel pretty sure that they're misunderstanding something, and that this misunderstanding is actually doing them harm.

However, they've posted on this subject before, and you've tried to comment helpfully on what you perceive to be a misunderstanding, and met with a dead blank in response -- not even "You don't know what you're talking about", or "Yeah, but it's my choice", either of which would be perfectly reasonable responses. Just a complete lack of acknowledgement that anything's been said.

Should you try again? Or just leave them to keep on messing themselves up -- as you see it, anyway -- while you watch in despair?
