Form letter rejection, but at least it was quick!

I don't want to critique this form letter too much because it was at least courteous, but this wording is bothering me:

"I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more..." - I think I know what she's trying to say -- that from my letter her interest wasn't piqued enough to even read the sample -- but it kind of makes it sounds like she's not interested in reading more of my letter. I don't know. Just weird wording for me.

Memoir
ER 4/5/21 "While I am actively looking to build my nonfiction list, I am being incredibly selective, and I'm concerned that your platform isn't strong enough just yet."
I guess she wants a person with a large social media following? Definitely don't have that.
