I don't have a reply from 2/1/18- which I know was only 8 days ago, but it looks like others with more recent queries have heard back already. Anyone else with a query that's been skipped?

In one day: Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

Again, thank you very much for allowing us this chance to consider your material, and we wish you all the best in your publishing endeavors.

Queried 12/26 and received an auto-response saying that the agency is closed December 19th - January 3rd, and no queries submitted within that window will be read (the email said just to re-query on the 3rd).
