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!

Question: my query is going on 90 days, and normally I'd assume it's just CNR, but I never received a confirmation email saying that the query was received, which the website says the agency sends automatically. Have others received confirmation notices or no?

EDIT: Sent a follow-up email and got the auto-response.

I received a confirmation email immediately when submitted. You might follow up and make sure she received it.
