She asked for a partial, and then I notified her of an offer of rep. I didn’t hear from her, so I sent a follow-up on that email. My deadline was today, and I never heard from her.

Full request one month later, from a different email address (Gmail) that 1) is not listed on the agency's website, 2) did not include my original query, and 3) signed with only the agency address, not a name.

I have a feeling she likes to read submissions for fun! With no intention of offering representation. She requested a full and I never heard back. Should have listened to what I read here. Not that it really hurts to try, and I didn't get my hopes up, but I do feel a bit icky that I sent my full ms to a person who seems less than professional.

Asking for one page reveals a twenty second commitment on an agent's part.
In twenty seconds, an agent cannot make an informed judgment.

Submitted to her years ago after enthusiastic result for a full. Over 18 months, nudged her three or for times, always received a promise to hear back soon, then totally ghosted. Shady? I can't say but rude AF!
