HLComo260 I got the same rejection so it must be a form.

Query sent 2/13/17
Rejection 2/24/17
I am not sure if this is a form rejection or not, but it's nicely written:

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to read your submission. Unfortunately, after careful review, I have decided to pass on this
project. This industry is incredibly subjective, and there are many agencies out there with many different tastes. It is for this reason that I
strongly encourage you to keep submitting elsewhere, in the hopes of finding an agent who will be an enthusiastic champion for you and your work.

I wish you all the very best of luck and success with your writing.
Sincerely,
Natalie M. Lakosil

Her goal is to respond to every query, and in a 2 to 4 week span, but I'll CNR this anyway and add it to my already massive "No -- No Response" folder.

update: ER (form letter) 2016-11-16 -- response moved to massive "No -- Rejected" folder

Autoreply that says to allow 4 wks for a response needs updating. Actual reality for many has been much longer.
