Had a friend submit their full to this agent after telling her she loved what they wrote and was excited to read more, then she turned around and completely ghosted my friend and they were heartbroken. I myself got ghosted by this "agent". It's fine if you don't like the work, but just say no. Even a form would help with closure for some people. It's so rude to request people's FULL work then ghost them. But it authors started spreading the word around. The agent would be upset. Respect goes both ways.

I get that you're "busy" but if you requests someone's full and they take the time out of their day to send it to you, the least thing you can do is just say "it wasn't for me" or "it's a pass." It's amazing how some agents want so much respect yet don't give it. Remember, if it weren't for writers, you wouldn't have a job.
