I'm at 94 days, doesn't look like this agent has responded to anyone in a long, long time

Second rudest, curtest, most ridiculous rejection letter I have ever received.

Query - 04/27/2015
Reject - 06/01/2015
SF - 123,000 words.

Replied: "thank you for your query, but we are not interested", with no words capitalized. Most abrasive rejection I've ever gotten. Susanjett was correct when she said "[T]here are times when 'no response' just has more dignity." DNQ.

Received a similar rejection a few weeks ago, sorry I don't have the exact date. "Sorry for the delay. Besides we're not interested." (??) I had sent my query 5/31/2014 and had written it off as a CNR months ago. What made me mention this now? He just accepted my friend request (also from 2014) on FB today.

Epic fantasy

Same exact reply as previous posters, incl. bad grammar & punctuation. Signed 'Peace'(!)

Um, yeah.

I never thought I'd say this, but there are times when 'no response' just has more dignity...

As with other users - More than the delay, I'm disappointed with the lack of professionalism in this response. Will not query with any further projects.

Just received a rejection from Mr. O'Higgins on a different project, one year and one day after I sent the initial query. So those of you who are waiting, you might get something eventually...but I'm not holding out much hope for my latest query.
