Agents owe us nothing... We are seeking their representation, not the other way around. And based on the spelling and grammar within your rant, it is fairly easy to see what factors led to your rejection. The truth is, agents don't have to respond to us at all. Especially since this agent, in particular, stated on her profile that she is swamped with queries (specifically YA) at the moment. So, to try and destroy her professionalism and character is far from the logical response, especially for your own career. All you did was leave evidence on the internet, showing that she made the right decision by exemplifying just how unprofessional you are capable of being.
Take it from someone who has received his fair share of rejection letters, both personal and form. Use a rejection letter as another scrap to throw on the fire that inspires you to keep writing. If you take it personally, you're only stepping into that fire and letting it engulf you. Do no demonize or denounce agents for not finding interest or passion in your work. I am honored to have at least been deemed worthy of a response and, one day, it'll be a positive one. Remember: To each their own! Live and let live! Keep that in mind, wish your journey and process well, and hope that the next agent doesn't make the mistake of passing on you because I'm sure you're a great writer. Keep working hard.

Be good. With love,
