It's pretty terrifying to see that no one on here has ever gotten a response. This is the kind of stuff that dictates whether or not I will submit to someone. And the answer here is no.

Thanks TammyFitz and Hopeful Author. I still haven't heard anything either. (And I even nudged the generic submissions account for a mere auto-confirmation, and got ignored). I'm giving up on the agency.
