Nice wording, but still a form rejection. Better than no reply though.

Honestly, I can't help but wonder why we have to do research on agents and personalize our queries when they all just respond with form rejects that don't even address you by name half the time.

I wish there was an option for a lovely step aside on QT, rather than just a rejection. Since there isn't, I marked this as a rejection.

So:
Query: 01/22/19
Nudge with offer of rep: Feb 18
Step aside: Feb 21- personalized and very nice
