EQ: 12/8/2021 (also per #PitMad tweet regarding queer adult fantasy)
FR: 1/5/2022 Same form rejection from entire agency

I guess they're cleaning out all those #PitMad entries. I notice she deleted the tweet. Have a sinking suspicion she was overwhelmed with a flood of entries and after a "polite" amount of time they're just sending out mass form rejections.

ER: 01/03/22 -- seems like if it's not touched for a month they send out form rejections first thing in the morning!
