I assume something happened, based on how she didn't answer queries for a year, and now she's trying to get back in the swing of things. If that's the case, I think it's rather nice she's issuing rejections. It'd be a lot easier to just ignore the entire last year, but I"m glad she's not.

I just queried a few days ago. I guess I'll check back in a year or two to see how it went....

My form rejection email was received yesterday - 139 days from my query submission. After reading the comments below, I guess I am not alone with the "shaking of my head", but I ask, why do they even bother to respond? To alleviate guilt? Just saying...doesn't make a lot of sense and I have been seeing this more and more of late. Thoughts anyone?

I'm with you, @CSDwrites!! WTF?!? Mine was eighteen months, 530 days, from query to form rejection. That's too funny to get mad about (though I am clearly a little miffed at the gall of it)

I don't know why, but after 659 days I received a form rejection. I can't decide if this is funny or not:)
