13 day boilerplate rejection.
Although this format is more preferred than the teasing letters that look like they're an acceptance when they're a rejection.

Thank you very much for submitting your material to us. Our agents have now had a chance to look at it and we are sorry to say we don’t feel that we can offer you representation. Because of the high volume of submissions we receive, unfortunately we are not able to give you more detailed feedback than this. However, these things are very subjective and someone else may well feel differently about your work.

Thank you again for letting us take a look at your material, and we wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher.

I have no idea if this means anything, but after reviewing his TIMELINE, I noted he has only had 5 submissions through QT in 30 days, 16 in 90 days, and only 31 in 6 months. And he still has not found anything he wants to represent. Hmm.

Online submission form seeems to be malfunctioning.
