If he is interest in having it receive, he does.  An author who does not 
take his audience into consideration quickly finds himself without one 
(expecting acts of serendipity and genius, of course).

I am not sure where you are drawing the distinction between the two.  I am 
taking "delivery" to refer to the composition of the message, thus integral 
to the message.  How are you defining the two?
