These are the sort of agencies that should be penalized. I'd urge anyone to think twice before querying them. Would you really want to work with annoying, stuck-up people who can't even organize themselves to confirm receipt of your query or even get someone to create a simple standardized rejection form for them? Remember once you sign with an agent, you are stuck with them for the life of your book.

@raktinope, I didn't get a confirmation email. I'm always suspicious of agencies that use their own homegrown submission forms... it's like rolling your own crypto :P
