She’s reopened, but no response on my previous query on QM from March. Do we nudge?

I sent a query at the end of March and closed it out as Closed/No Response on 6/11, but much to my delight and surprise got a Full request today (8/17), so yeah if you have old queries out there maybe hold off closing them out!

Their web site says they try to reply to every query within 8-10 weeks. But it actually took 21 weeks for her to reply. She did, at least send a personalized rejection.

FYI - In previous submissions for some of my other novels, one response took 290 days and one 76 days. She seems to have some very long response times.
