Lane has had my partial for just over two months. Nudged about a week ago, but no reply. Any thoughts on multiple nudges?

"I hate to say this is going to be a pass as this does not sound like a fit for me at this time. Thank you for considering The Tobias Literary Agency, and please do stay the querying course as this industry is highly subjective. Best of luck with your future queries."
