One line form rejection— to the point, but still professional.

TRAllardice: I understand that (I've been in this industry for over a decade too), it's just IMHO that it's lazy and unprofessional, in general. That's just my opinion, it doesn't make me ungrateful or ignorant of how this business works. We're allowed to have our own thoughts on how we're rejected, there's no harm done in doing that, now is there? I personally like rejections where there's as much effort put into it as writers put into their query, at least to me, it's more respectful to the writer. One-line rejections like this are also slightly disrespectful, really, but to each their own even with rejections. At the end of the day, I move on at the instant a rejection is sent. It's never the end of the world.

LightofBeauty, As someone who's been in the publishing business for over a decade, I can say from experience that there's nothing unprofessional or lazy about the rejection you received. Any response is good these days. I'd rather have something short and to the point, than get no response at all. Be grateful you have an answer. Now you can move on to the next query.

I get a rejection is a rejection no matter how an agent rejects, be it short and sweet or long and encouraging, but rejections like this, honestly it makes you GLAD that they passed. Rejections like this are just lazy and unprofessional.
