Just received FR from query sent 6/07/22 - it was great, because the subject line read, "form_rejection".

At least it doesn't keep you guessing! I had CNR'd this some time ago.

Query 6/19
Email reject 7/14

A kind rejection letter, though I wish they used a format other than the BCC list. QM or even an individual email reject gives it a bit more of a personal touch IMO.
