Response (liturgy)

This unicode character is awesome (\u211f):



It means response:

A response is the second half of one of a set of preces, the said or sung answer by the congregation or choir to a versicle said or sung by an officiant or cantor.

Every comment thread you have ever seen on the internet (which are often typical) could be a "response", right? Sometimes it's like we're just going through the motions:
