Announced on Twitter:
--- Just a quick note: I'm closing to queries for the month of May so I can blitz through what I have outstanding and begin a transition to QueryManager. My current inbox system is a mess and I'm excited to try something new. Please get anything pressing in before May 1st! Thanks. ---
Hopefully we'll start hearing back from him soon!

Laura_WA -- My rule of thumb is other agents are always fair game unless the agency explicitly says they're "no from one means no from all." If the initial agent doesn't give a timeframe (i.e. "no response after X weeks means no"), I wait 12 weeks before declaring CNR. In Connor's case, though, I'd give him a little longer -- he's said a few times that he's still really behind. It doesn't seem like he's evaluated any queries yet since re-opening this year.

Does anyone know if you can query another agent if you get no response from another with Fuse? I can't find that anywhere in the guidelines. Thanks!

FR 10/04/18 - send 10/7, requested & received confirmation receipt
Apparently all my emails got put in the wrong folder (spam or otherwise). Based on bwchilds also getting a response on an old query, hopefully a few more people stuck in the snafu will also get answers!

Queried at the five-month mark (3/06/2019), and he responded immediately saying that he still has my full, his backlog is enormous, hoping to get to it this month.

Announced on Twitter this afternoon (1/30/2019) he's officially re-opened to queries. Also noted he's still somewhat behind on his inbox.

FR 10/5/2018 (sent same day)
Nudge to confirm receipt: 11/12/2018 (received confirmation)

It's been over 100 days on the full, so I'm assuming this is a no and tentatively closed it out as a CNR on 1/10/2019.
