@mirandaf That does make sense. I have gotten form rejections from agents who said they didn't reply, but most them were things I submitted with either #ownvoices or #MSWL in the subject line. In one case, the agent said to submit future projects.

@karenleespree and @saraco -- most likely those are a mixture of personalized rejections (eg agent really liked some things but there was also something that appeared to be a dealbreaker), responses to queries with referrals, responses to people who she'd met at conferences etc. i got a rejection once from an agent who typically did not send them because i mentioned in my query that she'd requested material from me in the past :-)

I'm always confounded as to why some queries get a pass and others are ignored. (using the data stats)

Polite 'personalized' form letter rejection. Clearly, they actually did read it. I'm open to sending them other works in the future.
