I just wanted to say it took 2 years to send a rejection. LOL
I've been agented and made two book deals in-between time.

I received a form rejection from this agent a full year after my query. Seeing it in my inbox cracked me up because in the meantime I'd signed with another agent and the novel sold in a six figure preempt.

I submitted a query back in July and received a note from the submissions coordinator in late October that my query was still under consideration. Sent a follow-up to the submission email recently and got an auto-reply referencing she is closed to submissions, but if query was sent prior to Nov. 1, they would be "reviewed as normal," whatever that means.

Looks like her website is back up.

Profile Update: Closed to queries.

I re-marked her as closed, but it is unclear. The auto response does say she is closed to queries, but below that it says she "may review them if they are in a genre she represents."

I have emailed her for clarification and will post here when known.
