10/13/21 - "Dear Writer" rejection as below. I'm used to rejection by now, but not even bothering to put in my name is rude.

I received the same form rejection as the writers below. "Dear Writer" in place of my name. They even responded to an email regarding resubmission (which I sent after making changes based on another agent's feedback before they rejected my initial submission) a week later with the same response.
